_Three Fortunes in One Cookie_, by Cochrane Lambert. Alyson Books, 416
pages, $14.95 paper.
Phillip's boyfriend has dumped him, his Barnes & Noble job depresses him, he can't pay his rent, he has no energy for his art, and a bitter New York winter looms. So when his domineering grandfather demands that Phillip move back to small-town Mississippi and the antebellum home where he was raised, to care for his sweetly goofy mother, he doesn't have much choice. The deft writing team of (Becky) Cochrane and (Timothy) Lambert have crafted a beguiling, campy epic crammed with sympathetic characters and engaging eccentrics, including Phillip's four aunts, who run the gamut from fulminating fundamentalist to reserved lesbian; the Irish hunk he left behind in Manhattan, who might still be the man of his dreams; his new Mississippi acquaintances, one of them a voyeuristic hooker, another an easygoing leather Daddy; and an old high school chum struggling with his own desires. Three Fortunes in One Cookie is bright and breezy, but the ease with which it can be read belies a complex, captivating plot and charming, solid storytelling.
