2 Works in Jason Gomes
Guert Affenlight owns and manages Bartleby's bar in the college town of Westish, Wisconsin. Searching for decent espresso, he checks out Café Oo, that hipsterish student place with a crazily talented barista named Henry and a bored busboy called Owen who reads when he should be working. Owen and Guert soon find that they have more in common than coffee.
14-year-old Owen knows he’s gay but is terrified of anyone else finding out, especially the guys on his high school baseball team. Then he finds a book called The Sperm-Squeezers.
Spoilers for the novel.
