The House of Impossible Beauties

A gangbuster start about life for the GLBTQ community of the 1980’s from a latino perspective with a strong focus on transsexuals. We are thrown a bunch of delectable characters with a minimal plot. This felt like the basis for the Ryan Murphy series “Pose”. The novel includes stuff about “Houses”, sex change surgery, and AIDS. Without a compelling story to drive the narrative forward, the reader gets lost. This debut novel by Joseph Cassara runs out of steam heat at the midway point and never recovers.
