Boy Oh Boy is a collection of queer fabulist stories and flash fictions told via second person, asking readers to share Doss's explorations of joy and longing. Your boyfriend is many boyfriends, possibly all the boyfriends you've ever had or will have. But you must ask yourself whether you have them or they have you. Your boyfriend plays jokes on you--plays jokes on the world. He is forever unattainable, and still you love your boyfriend, even when it hurts you. Doss explores how relationships can be all-consuming, how we transform ourselves to fit within their contour. Eventually, you might change so much that you don't even fit inside your own body. This book is so much about space--the physical, emotional, and mental spheres that everyone inhabits. Doss uses humor to deal with the isolation that each of us experiences--not because we're alone, but because we've become detached from ourselves, our needs, and our desires. Boy Oh Boy is our chance to understand Zachary Doss, as well as our strangest selves.
