“The Troubleseeker is an engrossing read…with a wonderful overlay flavoring of the Caribbean…

“Alan Lessik combines several unlikely fictional elements and an unexpected point of view in this auspicious debut novel. But it pays off: The Troubleseeker is an engrossing read about one gay man’s life-voyage that manages to be fantastic and yet quite real, with a wonderful overlay flavoring of the Caribbean that you can almost taste.”

Felice Picano, Author

I am honored to share this review by Felice Picano. As a founding member of the Violet Quill in 1980, he and others began the gay literary movement. Due to their efforts, gay and lesbian literature became its own genre, and LGBT presses and imprints supported these voices that were missing from the literary canon. His  novel, Like People in History, showed me how important it was to see our lives in print.
