  • Eat Your Heart Out, Judy Blume: Author Brian Sloan's first novel, "A Really Nice Prom Mess," is being released in paperback next month by Simon Pulse with a whole new gayer look.

  • Reading List: In "Bang Crunch," gay Canadian Neil Smith’s debut collection of stories, "average people find themselves in decidedly unusual situations, as the mundane and the fantastic collide.

The members of a support group for people with benign tumors begin to suspect that their meekness has caused their medical woes. A woman mourning the loss of her husband finds solace in talking to his ashes, entombed in a curling stone." (Amazon)

    Madonna has done some tracks ("Sorry" comes to mind) lip-synched, but she sings most of her concerts these days, thank you very much...she sounds great live on those ballads and mid-tempos where her voice is undeniably imperfect, infinitely appealing and unmistakably Madonna.
