Coming Up from the Down Low
Author
J.L.King
Review
J.L.King is a bisexual Afro-American. In this book, Coming Up from the Down Low, he discusses his as well as other mens' relationships and experiences while living with their wives or significant other while having affairs with men. many gays as well as bisexuals feel that they would be ostracized, blacklisted or even harmed, should they make public their sexual orientation. King asserts that many leaders know that they have gay and bisexual members but find it hard to accept; a perfect example of "don't ask, don't tell."
Personally, while I also think this book is somewhat of a controversial nature.

The Glass Castle
Author
Jeannette Walls
Review
Well done memoir, but TMI for me (too much info). Horribly dysfunctional family and events. Imagine my concern when I learned my 10 yr-old niece was reading another book by this author after a library search on "horses". Luckily that book is a safe one.
