A Death on the Wolf - G.M. Frazier I mistakenly thought this would be another supernatural werewolf story, because of the word wolf in the title. I couldn't have been more wrong. Wolf refers to a place, a river to be precise. The story is in fact a combination of coming of age and nostalgic memories.That might sound like a slow moving summer trip down memory lane, but this book manages to venture into quite a few sub-plots, which are hot topics. Domestic violence, male rape, homosexuality, racism and the discriminatory view of the religious. Hard to imagine that all those controversial themes flowed side by side comortably to make one story and yet they do.I think the author approached the issue of a young boy and his homosexuality very well. Showing the confusion, frustration and fear of rejection from the boy's perspective and then the ignorance, discrimination and anger from his family. It was subtle, but very memorable.All in all this was a very enjoyable read.I received a free copy of this book for my review
