Pacific Book Review - Nicole Sorkin - Rating: 5 STARS

"All Gays Go to Heaven turns circumstances into vision, vision into purpose, purpose into perseverance, and perseverance into accomplishment. Dr. Reece Manley’s story is disturbing and unforgettable with an inspiring message of hope for anyone struggling to raise themselves above their disabilities.  Dr. Reece Manley has the wonderful ability to describe scenes and events as if one were right there with him.  You feel his pain, loss, love and anger.  Dr. Manley’s writing conveys the close-knit bond of deep faith in God and of his loyalty to a caring mother.  Dr. Manley also has a wonderful way of adding his humor and wit appropriately, without distracting from his story.  I believe the core message in All Gays Go to Heaven is simple - God loves everyone regardless of creed, color, and sexual orientation.  Hatred is a wasted energy.  We should all learn how to replace hatred with love, peace, and acceptance.

That is so funny! " A trip to these guys begins the night before"! We used to have to administer a substance called Golytely to these poor patients to drink and I always wondered what sadistic mind came up with that name. 



"If I died he'd wake me up"! LOL! I'm sorry for laughing. Nurses have a morbid sense of humor. Something which you probably found out on your own. 
Poor Rosie! 
"I sampled everything but the waiter"!!! 
"blood sucking creature" who you calling blood sucking?! (have to stop, my dryer is calling me) 
Wow, the intubation, I wonder why they didn't at least use some Versed so at least you would not remember. 
You are so lucky to have had your loving family with you throught this ordeal.

All Gays Go to Heaven is the third book from the now dubbed "New Gay Author of 2010" from Queerbook.com, Reece Manley. Dr. Manley's first two books included a slew of professional initials after his name, but this one simply credits him Reece Wyman Manley. It shows the author's shift from teaching to simply telling in this his first wide appeal work.

All Gays Go to Heaven follows Reece's life from the point of making a decision to have surgical weight loss interventions which go horribly awry to his life as it is today. In the retelling of his story, he follows the ancient story of the hero's journey with all the elements included in his true to life journey. What makes the book stand out is that Reece holds nothing back. All of the ugliness of a life - incest, beatings, abuse, addiction - to all the beauty life can hold - love, friendship, spirituality and an authentic life.

The nemesis of Reece's life comes in the form of an injury during his bariatric surgery, slimming him from 414 pounds to 170 pounds. However, the injury disables him with a neuropathy which delivers chronic pain to his feet. The pain takes the form of a giant black bird in one graphic passage from the memoir, which delightfully feeds on his exposed feet. It's an image hard to shake as one progresses through the pages.

Soon, there are plenty of smiles served up by his companions and the exploration of a gay life apparently quite lively in the city of Lubbock, Texas. His friend, Jeff, delivers the best lines of dialog in his simple task of answering his phone. "Jeff's House of Coffins, our prices are to die for!" The pithy becomes the lovable. In addition, a mentor appears in Reece's life full of an advising wisdom on all the matters of his life. The balance between the characters is tense at times, and a bit choppy, but the overall effect is intriguingly readable.

All Gays Go to Heaven's title comes from a conversation Reece has during his inpatient treatment for the trauma of his near death experience. He simply reveals his new Truth that there is a loving, omnipotent Source which we all eventually reach after we pass on. The story ends with his hopeful grip on both his life path, his sanity and the containment of the pain which still haunts from the corners.

All Gays Go to Heaven is a hefty 189,000 words, but a rich, easy writing style makes the journey not only enjoyable, but inspiring as well.

Five Stars.
