Quick Book Review: “Into?” by North Morgan
After reading a dense, information-packed science book about the immune system, I hit the other end of the spectrum and read this mindless, trashy gay novel. Into? is a satirical (I hope) look at a subset of shallow, superficial gay men who never find love. The main character, Konrad, obsesses over straight “bros” at the gym, goes from party to party to party gobbling drugs and hooking up, while getting his sustenance from Facebook and Instagram. Parts of the book made me laugh, while others made me cringe. Konrad is a total trainwreck, and it’s scary to think that there are undoubtedly men who live like this. Satirical and cynical, bleak and trashy… pure escapism.
