First You Fall: A Kevin Connor Mystery - Scott  Sherman

Progress = 14 pages out of 253

 

I was warned about some nasty comments about people who are fat, so I am conscious as I read of references to weight.

 

- The first was where the narrator, Kevin, is talking about how he has to look good for his job as a rent boy, so he works out four times a week and luckily has a fast metabolism, so he can eat what he wants. This seems quite reasonable and not-weird. He's 5'3" and weighs 125 pounds.

 

- The second was quite weird indeed.  Kevin is talking about another rent boy he works with named Randy, and Kevin states that he has a body that could only be shaped by back-breaking workouts, steroids, and the appetite suppressing powers of crystal meth.  (!?!) Yeah, I'm sensing some fat phobia here!
