I am currently reading a novel by author Jay Edson called "Koan". I'm not sure how I stumbled upon this author but he seems to like to write about Man/boy relationships and knows a lot about the dynamics of MAA and YF friendships. This book is about a teacher in his mid thirties who befriends a boy of 11 who has lost his father and is in need of a man in his life. They enjoy going camping together and skinny dipping and this is when the man finds out that he not only loves the boy but also has unsettling sexual feelings for him. I won't give away much of the story but there is a lot of discussion with a Catholic priest about God, the devil, and the attraction of a grown man to a young boy. This book is very well written and also very sympathetic towards the struggles of a relationship like this. I am almost halfway through it already and only started reading it two days ago. Other books by this author are "This Too is Love" and "Marcus and Me". Both of these are also about YF relationships of some kind. Has anyone else read the book I am reading or any of Mr. Edson's books and have a comment? I am thoroughly enjoying this read so far, although I think the leading characters are going to get into some kind of trouble.
