The "Buddies" series of Ethan Mordden is composed by five delicious books narrating with humour, zany wit and profound sensibility the life of some gay friend in Manhattan:Bud, the narrator , his closest friend Dennis Savage, Dennis' lover Little Kiwi (aka Virgil Brown aka J.), the "elf-child" trickster Cosgrove and the gentle hunk Carlo, and their friends, parents and acquaintances."Some men are Lookers" shows the growing independence of Little Kiwi,little no more, whilst Cosgrove is in full bloom and gives his best (or his worst) in "What a difference Miss Faye Made", when he invites a shameless drag-queen at a dinner for Peter Keene, prospective Dennis Savage's editor. Another great story is "Exorcis", a funny/tragic story, Little Kiwi/Virgil and Cosgrove offer to their friends the vision of a movie "The lost boys", wayward boys turning into vampires. Among the one-liners, arrives the last call of an old Dennis Savage's acquaintance,but Dennis wouldn't listen. He will learn a sour lesson by his ever more independent Virgil,who will become (to their friends dismay) gradually ever more "mature" and estranged.

I have grown fond of these characters, of their disputes, growing pains and various adventures, punctuated by a sparkling dialogue and, at times, poignant sentimental moments. Something of a family, as Bud calls it. It's an exquisite read for gays and non-homophobic straights alike, because this little microcosm's tales tell us something about tolerance, the meaning of love, the endurance against discrimination and hatred, that has universal value. I counsel you all to read them! They're really funny and inspiring.But the spooky, the tragic and the hysterically funny intertwine magnificently in these stories, worthy of Saki, O'Henry and Oscar Wilde.

Even though this is the fourth of Mordden's series on gay Manhattan, this is the first one I've read. I immediately went out and purchased the third, which attests to the fact that I found lots of fun and solace in reading this book. Between the laughs, I felt swell because I could recognize the musical comedy quotes and the references to gay life in the 70s and 80s on the east coast. I think it's interesting that the Kirkus review mentions Ivy Compton-Burnett because the relationships in this book have the same elusive quality as the ones in her books, often characterized only by quirky dialogue. However, I disagree with the Kirkus review: I found this book and especially the repartee to be funny, and several of the episodes are quite moving. It's amazing to see that a good writer is recording the paths our lives have taken within gay culture: I was reminded of myself and my early friends, many of whom are now gone. And, as sappy as this sounds, I felt that our friendships and caprices had all meant something after all

This story line was fun for a while but it's getting tired

I love this book! I love this series and it absolutely pains me to think that this may be the last (I say maybe because originally Buddies was supposed to be the last). It is such a difficult book to pick up and read because every emotion invested in the previous three books is tested. My love for Dennis Savage's irony becomes sorrow at the hope that he will lose face and stay with Little Kiwi. My love for Little Kiwi's innocence becomes concern for his actions. It's like watching your child make questionable decisions and knowing that no matter what the result, the choices that they make are theirs, and there's nothing you can do about it, but let them be chosen. It's hard letting Little Kiwi grow up and become Virgil Brown. I imagine it's the same way with a child, but at least then you get to see what happens! Mind you, the book like the other three is a comic genius with subtle, feeling humor that has you laughing one minute and crying the next. But just like "Just Above My Head" by James Baldwin (which I highly recommend), I have been unable to pick up this book and read it again. It simply leaves me realing with so many feelings, yet I would not trade the experience reading it with anything. How does one mix merriment with malaise so well? Read the book and find out.

morddens first three books were terrific, deeply moving and honestly human companions through the darkest years of the aids crisis. the characters are so real that the reader becomes part of that unusual extended family of choice. the unique charm and wit of the author is undeniable on every page and between the lines. the fourth, long awaited volume fits completely in the readers expectations after the first three books. don't believe a word of the kirkus-jerk's review. this is family, for god's sake! and it enlightens the shadowed rainbow-colors of the gay community during the last years, without getting whiny or too depressed over all the grief. as an aids-widower i'm deeply grateful for these books and i'm glad mordden is still around to write many more. ethan, keep up the good work!
