I loved speaking with Todd Summar for Lambda Literary. Our conversation lasted roughly 2 hours, and I never wanted it to end. Todd is thoughtful and sharp, and his words are so generous here:
"Boy Erased is not an expose, not a self-help book or sentimentally sensational tell-all. Instead, it is a nuanced, sharply written work of art. Conley’s prose is evocative and lush, allowing the reader to understand the confusion and frustration endured, not only by him, but also his mother and father whom, ultimately, regrettably, thought they were doing the right thing."
