Fresh Pick for Saturday, January 30th, 2016 is UNSAID by Avery Aster #SaturdayReads About UNSAID For fans who loved the snarky wit of Will & Grace and the epic love drama found in Brokeback Mountain comes Avery Aster’s new full-length, standalone contemporary M/M romance novel, Unsaid. Chelsea’s hottie Blake Morgan III has reemerged from a nasty breakup. His marriage was a frigid disaster beyond repair, and he vows to be single—forever. Bruised, but still hot in Prada, he creates his Seven Desires wish list, his sexiest imaginings.

Can these two hunks conquer their intimate fears and…

My grandmother and I read the Iliad together when I was twelve, and watched the entirety of the BBC’s I CLAVDIVS, and I probably experienced the demythifications of Mary Renault a little too early in my emotional development, but there you go. Around the same time, I was taking drama classes at school, and we learned about Greek theatre and the roots of Western drama.
