A series of shorts that all have the exact same message: oppressive small town, bigot-minded people in Ireland and the gay men who have to live with the oppression and bigots. It's basically the same story told with twelve (or however many shorts there are) different sets of characters. There's minor overlapping in the later stories, but they can all be read independently. Or skimmed, as I took to doing just so I could get through it. Editing is needed, as there were several jumps in the narrative where time seemed to be lost without explanation, or settings/time suddenly changed, again without explanation.
