  • An odd yet intriguing book Initially, it's a rather romantic look at chic gay life at the end of the disco-and-cocaine era, with that slightly melancholy Fitzgeraldian note And then, suddenly, you're in the midst of an Umberto Eco story--- a well-researched, well-crafted almost-conspiracy tale about Frederick Law Olmstead, the Freemasons, and the building of Central Park. Surprising, unexpected, and oddly delightful. Worth finding.


  • This is an interesting story that begins with the meeting of two young Americans at a pensione in Florence. Chase, handsome and stylish and happy with his sexuality, and Peter (the narrator) who is just coming to terms with his, set out on clandestine late night meetings, and from there the tale develops imaginatively to the present and a private cruise on a luxury yacht. The story is very well told, although I found the diversions into the history of Central Park, while relevant to the plot, so [...]


  • There was a time in my life where I was fortunate to have had the chance to read a lot of gay press novels cheaply, and The Blue Star is one of the few that I vividly recall. The story stands out in my mind as incredibly successful use of a binary plot. The Italian scenes are believable and a perfect foil for what is to come. Through inheritance, Ferro's novel draws the obvious line from the gay nightlife of the time into the heart of (an ostensibly conservative) American life and raises a host [...]


  • I kept thinking that the two plot threads would connect. In the end it was only a metaphoric connection, which felt a bit let down by. It was very well written and I loved each paragraph, but it didn't seen to have a sufficient structure to create sufficient emotional resonance.



  • A better novel perhaps than The Family of Max Desir—certainly different in its “fancifulness.” My kind of book: happy ending with a touch of ennui. [Ferro died in 1988.]
