Reviews of Eros & Dust
- Out in Print — "I picture three Trebor Healeys. The dense forest hides many more, but three in particular creep out from the between the trees…"
- The Bay Area Reporter — "14 well-constructed, engaging, and highly provocative stories ruminating on the nature of desire, identity, eroticism, and the connective properties of art…"
- Lambda Literary — "The stories are constructed of thick, revealing narratives that offer a great deal of insight about the heroes and hapless within its pages. Almost every piece could easily be expanded and transformed into a novel or novella."
- The Gay & Lesbian Review — "Whether Healey’s being funny or serious, wistful or bitchy, the writing in these stories is uniformly excellent."
Books by Trebor Healey
“A Horse Named Sorrow is simply, inexorably beautiful. It is sexy, cinematic, the prose itself an absolute joy to read, and often funny as holy hell. It is, at the same time, one of the saddest works I have ever read: piercing, poignant, and memorable.”
— Maureen Seaton, author of Furious Cooking
“This magical tale about a boy unexpectedly turning into a faun is funny, poignant and erotic. Faun offers a wise meditation on our relationship to the earth as well as each other—and to our sexuality, which is the ‘greenest’ part of us all.”
— Mark Thompson, author of the Gay Spirit, Gay Soul, Gay Body trilogy
— Lambda Book Report
“Shows us men and women whose lives have been, or are about to be, forever altered by love. . . . SHARP, EMPATHIC, AND UNFORGETTABLE.”
— Bernard Cooper, author of The Bill from My Father
“Trebor Healey’s writing is suffused with the purest emotion, the bravest, funniest tone, and the perfect balance of poetics, daring, and charm.”
— Joy Nicholson, author of Tribes of Palos Verdes
