Over the past months I have been reading The Angel of Pie Jesu, a story out of our niche and with a deal of merit.
I follow John Teller's stories. Because the site has a declared niche I am unable to publish them here, though I have suggested to John that, shoudl he find two teenagers who wish to explore their love, those I will publish like a shot.
This tale starts out simple. As time passes in our youthful hero's life it gains a unique darkness.
John always produces a plot worth following, one that is sensitive to the nature of the relationship and always feels to me to be boy centred, not man centred. I'm looking forward to the rest of the plot unfolding at the agonising rate of a chapter per week.

Having just reached the end of book one in what is to be a trilogy, I must tell you that The Angel of Pie Jesu, by John T. S. Teller, is without doubt one of the best stories I have read this year, it is quite simply outstanding.
Narrated from the perspective of all of the characters in the book, that in itself is unique. The theme of the book which recounts the sexual life of a 13 year old boy, without balking at the reality it describes, which embraces issues of abuse, deals with a man's love for a boy and the boy's love for one special man, is challenging, but I believe is handled well.
The book is more than just about sex, and is not pornography, although some readers might find themselves shocked, even disturbed, by the graphic nature of the narrative in places. Nevertheless, such passages are in context and are just a tiny part of a novel which is so much more.
I think you might well be missing out on one great book if you don't read this, but read it through to the end before you make a judgement.
It is one of those books that some people might seek to repress or ban. Isn't that always the case when taboos get broken and someone writes about things people might prefer not to confront. One thing is certain, you can't fail to be affected by it.
