Ken Shakin's Love Sucks introduced a new kind of gay writing: sexy and in-your-face with a vengeance, but with a sharp edge of social comment that dug its way through the entrails of New York's big-city anomie. In Real Men Ride Horses, Shakin turns his acerbic gaze on a very different America: the plains and deserts of the West, past and present. This mythical landscape has always been home to all kinds of male bonding: from the Indian botes through cowboy pardners and Mormon bedfellows, to the drifters who haunt the bars and gas stations of the West today. This new selection of stories, including "A Virgin in the Desert", "A Communist in Montana" and "How the West Was Won" will make you laugh and cry, as Ken Shakin uncovers the lusts and pains that lie beneath the macho facades.
