The End of Eddy is hard to read because there’s so much pain within the story. I’m not sure why it’s called a novel; it appears to be autobiographical. The protagonist’s name is, after all, the name of the author. One thing is for sure, Eddy suffered a lot as a boy. He was effeminate in an environment where being a tough guy was everthing. Eddy just couldn’t fake toughness, though he made it his goal to try. He fooled no one. For that he was bullied mercilessly in school, in the neighborhood, and at home. I hope his brains and talent have landed him in a more accepting place in real life.

Beautifully written, heartbreaking story about growing and not being able to be who you really are.
