    1. The exquisite agony of being in the closet has been rarely hilariously penned than by Mr Rodi Poor Lionel Frank is a truly memorable literary creation In his increasingly frantic attempts to appear straight, he runs into such dilemmas he comes off as being like a Keystone cop it s just one ineffectual flailing after another Desperately horny, lonely and sexually frustrated, Lionel just can t seem to get a break and his yearnings after inappropriate men are both touching and vastly amusing.You f [...]

    2. I read this book years ago and I was an immediate Robert Rodi fan his writing sparkles and his characters are full of humour and affection His books might be considered light reading , but they are fabulous nonetheless.This book ended far too soon, and I really wanted to know what else happened to these wonderfully likeable characters.

    3. IIRC, I had liked Fag Hag it wasn t as funny as touted, and it was severe at a time when I was looking for gay romance, but it had very funny bits and terribly true observations I think I m no longer sure, because Closet Case starts out weakly The writing isn t a pleasure to read, and it s dangerously close to that Ben Idontwanttorememberhisname of the Gay Hollywood School, ie extremely boring and bland while listing what you know you re meant to find hilarious yuppy life.I m still hoping that L [...]

    4. Closet Case is the term use in the gay world for someone who has not come out He decides to hide his homosexuality from everyone.Rodi has created a great case You have an ad exec firmly in the closet, his flamboyant hairdresser, his conservative, gossipy coworkers, his army dad, his fundamentalist Christian sister, and his downstairs Latina neighbor and her gay straight man boyfriend Not to mention the guy from TransylvaniaAnd it all happens in the Chicago scene Being from Chocago I enjoyed the [...]

    5. While I really enjoyed this book, I didn t find it as laugh out loud funny as other reviews toted it to be It was a bit wordy in parts, and I have to admit, I skipped whole lines just to get to the point Overall, a pretty good read Next on my list is Rodi s Drag Queen Hopefully it s a bit funnier.

    6. Book group selection This represents what I like best about a book group it pushes me to read things I have never heard of or considered.And I think I ve met the author in singing classes at the Old Town School, only I didn t know he was a novelist, just a good singer.
