ROADS NOT TAKEN
July 26, 2017
Sometimes you need to let go of the wheel and see what happens. A coming-of-age story with a twist: When Malcolm thinks he has found the woman of his dreams, he is forced into reevaluating his beliefs and preconceptions while exploring the meaning of love without gender.
"Roads not Taken is my favorite….so far. This is #4 and the comfort and familiarity with some of the characters and their history, added to my enjoyment and personal involvement in this story. And then there is the subject matter that Gallo is shining a light on. Reading about the broad spectrum of gender identity as a part of the story and not the sole focus of the story is brilliant. There is empathy, insight and a well-told story in this latest novel-can’t wait for Murder at the Columbarium!!"
"How does one navigate the "gender spectrum" and the desires that may be incompatible with being a couple? Though not explicit, the story delves deeply and respectfully into what is for Malcolm a new world of sexuality."
