The Troubleseeker: “With a soul-full daring to take risks, Lessik pulls us to witness the full heat of life and love inside the human heart.”

“Alan Lessik’s The Troubleseeker is an extraordinary novel and a deeply moving expression of love. Gathering its beautifully numinous mythic and cultural materials, the book deftly tells the story of our hero’s journey, a gay Cuban man in the midst of life and historical tumult. With a soul-full daring to take risks, Lessik pulls us to witness the full heat of life and love inside the human heart.”

Tim Miller, Performer and author of Body Blows and 1001 Beds.

I am honored to share this review from Tim Miller. His performances and storytelling have been powerful commentaries on gay lives since 1981. He was one of the NEA four in 1990, a group of performance artists who grants were vetoed by the conservative and controversial NEA chair.  An activist, keen observer of human behavior and a funny, poignant and honest man, Miller is willing to show his/our vulnerabilities while celebrating the lives of all members of the LGBT community.
