"Henry Henry"
By Allen Bratton

"Happy Pride Month to all! In the spirit of the month, I offer you 'Henry Henry,' a first novel by Allen Bratton. This book is billed as a Queer retelling of Shakespeare's 'Henriad' (a group of plays depicting the rise of the English kings). The story revolves around Hal, the twenty-something son and heir to Henry, Duke of Lancaster. The setting is London in 2014 and Hal is deeply sunk into the party scene. He's out, but the death of a family member from AIDS ten years before casts a shadow over his sexuality in the eyes of his father. His mother died years ago and his many siblings are free agents, unhindered by the title that hangs over Hal's head. What this novel does well is depict the complexity of family relationships, the struggle to feel worthy of love (especially in a family deeply entrenched in Catholic guilt) and the search for a way through years of trauma to a place where one can feel agency of a kind. 'Henry Henry' is a lushly written debut and a powerful read."
