Watch my conversation with Renaldo Christopher, author of Gorgeous. It’s the story of four Black, gay men who try to escape the pasts that always seem to creep back up. We explore the stories of these characters and talk about how sickness helped him power through the first draft of his novel.
Some interesting points were when we discussed why he called his book “trash”, his thoughts about getting serious about making his writing a business, and especially his thoughts on the urban fiction genre. After a couple of conversations online with others about the show, I can tell that his perspective (found ten minutes into the video) ruffled a few feathers. Take a look and let me know your thoughts. Don’t forget to subscribe!
