characters Yield By Lee Houck ä PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free In his evocative and mesmerizing debut novel Lee Houck depicts a contemporary Manhattan thrumming with sex and violence as seen through the eyes of Simon a twenty something part time hustler with a cadre of loyal sometimes floundering friends As Simon grows increasingly involved with a gorgeous guileless client named Aiden he tries to navigate a path to fulfil. Simon lives in Manhattan and works as a file clerk at the hospital This is his part time day job but he also works as a gay hustler Rejected by his own Midwestern family he has moved to New York City where he has formed a family of choice which consists of three close friends all gay This eclectic band of comrades supports one another but they are disturbed and nearly paralyzed with fear when one of their members Louis is victimized in a nearly fatal gay bashingSimon takes Louis into his home and cares for him after the attack and the emotional and mental condition of his closest friend is troubling to Simon Another member of their group Jaron is struggling as well He not only suffers from anorexia but also is a self cutter habitually mutilating himself with sharp objects The final member of the group Farmer is the group s pragmatist He s the type who absorbs and stores trivia a walking and talking Trivial Pursuit gameThe pressures that Simon faces bear heavily upon his soul and coupled with the feelings of objectification and diminished self esteem caused by his chosen profession he is nearly crippled with anxiety Rather than succumb to such fatalism though Simon learns to manage the stress and fear by employing a coping mechanism He has conditioned himself to find a place within himself where he is emotionally flat He can zone out forcing himself not to feel the pain It is of course a form of disassociationWhen Simon is propositioned by a man at the local Laundromat things begin to change for him This attractive neighbor whom Simon has previously observed and fantasized about is known simply as Laundry Man Upon getting to know him though Simon discovers his true identity His real name is Aiden and what begins as a hustlerclient relationship soon evolves into something far significant When Aiden invites Simon to accompany him on a weekend getaway to Vermont Simon must make some important assessments of himself and his lifestyleIf ever I ve encountered an author who has mastered the ability to write with subtlety of voice so than this author I cannot recall whom Houck s writer s voice employs a very flat characteristic which is pointedly non dramatic He makes observations mostly of benign details and allows the reader to determine their significance He uses metaphors and colorful similes which often give the reader pause causing them to stop for a moment and thinkThis first person narrative is in the voice of Simon and for the first three uarters of the book it has a pessimistic wry and sardonic tone It is peppered with sarcastic wit which at times borders upon campiness yet it s voiced in a manner that is undeniably relatable It is when Simon reaches a point where he hesitantly lowers his shield and allows himself to love and be loved in return the tone of voice begins to shift somewhat It was during these passages that the story captured my heart The imperfections and vulnerabilities of the story s protagonist make him so real Although not particularly presented sympathetically he is likeable enough to root for He is loveable enough to hope for He is realistic enough to believe in And most importantly he is worthy enough to deserve happiness It is Simon s brutal and unflinching honesty that makes such an impact and it is his unspoken morality that makes him so heroic It is odd really because a snapshot of this character would suggest the opposite that he is perhaps a person who lacks morals One may assume that he is utterly depraved prostituting himself to the highest bidder Selling his body Selling his soul Yet his moral code is essentially what guides and saves him and it finally brings him to a point in his life where he is ready to yield This story is gem intelligently written and powerful a must read
