Not every book with a gay character deserves praise, e.g., The Yacoubian Building is filled with sad cliches and stereotypes that while unintentionally campy and hilarious deserve to be fed into the nearest fire -- it might as well have been called 'kill the fggt.' http://www.matthewgallaway.com/2008/03/on-the-yacoubian-building-hilarious-must-read-for-those-interested-in-gay-stereotypes.html (Contrast with The Kiss Murder, which though a 'genre' book about a Turkish cross-dressing (and gay) detective has none of these flaws: http://www.matthewgallaway.com/2009/02/on-guest-blogging-by-the-editorial-assistant-the-kiss-murder.html).
