Patrick Califia is one of my all-time favourite writers. He is an incredible wordsmith, able to write both fiction and fact in a way that both draws the reader in and informs you. His erotica is some of the hottest writing you will come across. Boy In The Middle is another of his compelling, sexy short story collections of polymorphous perversity and hardcore, sexually charged scenes. Califia has a way of taking the reader right into the story. He has the ability to describe place, character and atmosphere so well, you can't help but feel a part of it.
Boy In The Middle has such a collection of differing characters and set-ups that I defy anyone not to get some pleasure from it. Whatever your kink, fetish, gender or sexuality, Califia caters for you in this book. His writing will surprise you, being able to turn you on to a story, scene or character you may otherwise not have thought you'd be interested in; such is the power of his imagination. I recommend anyone who enjoys erotic fiction to read this book. Allow yourself some time to indulge and immerse yourself in it, because it will be hard to put down. Oh, and if you're reading Boy In The Middle in public, be aware that its effect may leave you needing to find somewhere for a 'quiet, private moment'!
