About the Book
A daring foray into the groundbreaking genre of autobiographical fiction. Sad Old Faggot is the absorbing, sometimes embarrassing, always entertaining story of a lonely, self-obsessed, selfish, deluded, impotent 62-year-old gay man named Sky Gilbert who - despite his best intentions - cannot help but become a stereotype. Sky's main claim to fame is founding Buddies in Bad Times Theatre in 1979. But since leaving Buddies, he's fallen on hard times. Sky Gilbert is no longer even remotely famous. He has to fight off his own bitterness as audiences for his plays steadily dwindle. Theatre people dismiss his work as old news and point to the fact that he teaches at the University of Guelph as proof: his descent into academia clearly signals his failure as an artist. All along the way, the book questions our truths and celebrates their mutability. What is really true about each of us? What do we actually know about ourselves? And how much, it asks, of our own personal truth is based on fact - and how much is rooted in fiction?
