BOOK REVIEW

TIM AND PETE by James Robert Baker
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: March 1, 1993

"Still, despite the excesses and overall shapelessness: some antic instances and vivid nostalgia for pre-AIDS gay life, combined with a pungent depiction of rabid heterophobia."
Baker (Fuel-Injected Dreams, 1986; Boy Wonder, 1988) brings together two gay ex-lovers for a 24-hour swing through the streets and byways of L.A. Sex, drugs, rock-and-roll, and violence: the guided tour is sometimes smartly satirical, sometimes padded with endless pages of dialogue, mind-numbing instances, and predictable types, though a Charlie Manson riff livens up the finish.

TIM AND THE BLANKET THIEF by John Prater
ADVENTURE
Released: Oct. 29, 1993

"Nice. (Picture book. 3-6)"
Tim is, well, timid; unlike the boisterous other children Prater depicts in his engaging, freely rendered pencil-and- watercolor illustrations, he doesn't like ``noisy, messy fun or being splashed or roughhousing.'' What he does love, despite the teasing, is his blanket; and when a pointy-hatted creature—a sort of shadow with a shadow of its own—steals this constant companion while Tim sleeps, he sets out, with unaccustomed boldness, in a dreamlike pursuit over mountains and seas to the thief's ``dreadful lair.'' Tim's brave demand for his blanket dissipates the thief's ``huge darkness,'' whereupon the lad retrieves not only his own but a hoard of other ``blankets, teddy bears, and best-loved toys'' and goes home to a hero's welcome.
