Most men – ordinary men – have extraordinary love lives. Pot Boiler: The Love Life of an Ordinary Young Man (published by AuthorHouse) by Liam Naston is a humorous novel that opens with some general remarks on men’s private lives – dreams, fantasies, masturbation, expression, repression, and the physical and soul love of other men, and women

“There is no taboo or judgment in the narrative,” Naston says, “only acceptance and open-mindedness about human sexuality.” Narrating in the first person, the author leads his readers through the wholeness of one man’s sexual growth – from his first inklings as early as age 5, to the heartbreak of his mid-20s and then his final acceptance and marriage at 30.

Naston cites curiosity as one of his inspirations for writing Pot Boiler. “Women and men think about their intimate relationships all the time,” he says. “At once they are frank and without fear, but they can also keep parts of themselves secret. This translates in odd ways into the culture.”

Liam’s experiences mimic many of those Naston’s readers will have experienced: childhood crushes, early experimental sexual encounters, and young adult rejection and heartbreak. The ways in which Liam learns from these experiences might offer Naston’s readers examples of growth or even trigger fun, forgotten memories.
