Driven by an ever-present wish for forgiveness and salvation, Benjy, a gay, Mormon man, transforms his anger toward religion and society into an Augustinian confession of his sins. Benjy’s self-deprecating gallows humor turns his many syndromes into cultural conditions he can joke about (e.g. BDS: the Blanch Dubois Syndrome, where everything is made more beautiful by putting a Chinese lantern over a naked light-bulb), allowing Benjy to diffuse, even for himself, the severity of the information he’s providing. Like what it was like in 1970s Georgia as a double outcast—the only Mormon among his peers, the only queer in his family. Or what it was like to be abused by his brother, Adam. And, too, what it was like to catch AIDS in the 1980s, then try and pray it away at a New Age commune.

But freshest and hardest of all, he must look at what went wrong in his friendship with his sister, Dinah. Their friendship ended the year their mother died—the year Dinah found Jesus again and began criticizing Benjy’s gay lifestyle. Once Benjy begins writing, it is easy for him to keep going and going. Hypergraphia quickly turns his pain and anger into a memoir.

Still, truth is what he wants, and his search for it leads him from Mormonism to Spiritualism to a pretended atheism and, finally, to a reality that insists forgiveness is the only way to obtain salvation. Forgiveness must be given in full, as if there is no self to be considered, or salvation will not come.

Samuel McIlrath is a graduate of Stetson University in De Land, Florida, and a staunch opponent of the death penalty. He has contributed to the Daytona Beach News-Journal and the Orlando Sentinel, standing up for gay rights and freedom of religion.
