An Asian Minor is a clever retelling of the Greek myth of Ganymede in the language of a likeable streetwise American ‘teen’. There are a couple of lapses of style, but the joke never outstays its welcome.
The illustrations are “Gay Art” at its worst, they appear to have been bought as a job-lot. They are irrelevant, contradict the words, the main character in the pictures being an Aryan blond while the script describes him as swarthy and having curly brown hair.
The drawings are probably the reason why the book is so pricey though they drag it down from the plane of genuine wit to that of a questionable jest.
