Bay Area Reporter Benediction review

JIm Provenzano reviews Benediction ahead of the reading in San Francisco this Saturday (7:30 pm, A Different Light, Castro near 18th):

“Arnold’s writing style is straightforward with occasional bursts of dry wit, through post-operative appointments with a hunky doctor whom he eventually beds, and even when Ben ends up locked in a cell post-blackout at a police station. His various encounters with backstabbing coworkers, flirtatious festival presenters, and perhaps the novel’s largest symbolic object, his bulging apartment wall, gradually build to a breaking point.”
