It being the second day of May in the year 2009 I must be the last person to read and appreciate this fine book. For some 31 years I owned and operated gay and lesbian bookstores here in the colonies (the United States of America) but it was not until my last store failed in 2004 that I was able to begin catching up on years of readings. And had thought I had gone through my remaining library when I found my copy of AT SWIM TWO BOYS. It was worth all the years of missing same. Like some of the other comments, I was in tears at the end, not a pleasurable sight being a rusty old 72 years. An amazing literary work and i so regretted reaching the end and will treasure the hours and emotions expended.

This book stands alone in the world of literature. It's as if literature has been this ongoing conversation amongst writers throughout time, and then At Swim, Two Boys comes seemingly out of nowhere and everything stops. Everything goes quiet. This book alone exists. With this book comes real change.
