Four Stories Of Love And Longing Michael J. Saul's first collection of shorts, "True Love" was a broad sampling of the many different aspects of gay love affairs. "Crush" is an anthology of four stories that examine the many feelings of longing and love in gay relationships. In "Don't Ask" a devoted couple is forced to confront their feelings regarding love and war when one of them begins to question his military service. The obsessions of an eager teen-ager lead him into the arms of a fellow classmate who hides a dangerous but erotic secret in "Bloodline". In "Strokes", despise turns to affection as a young student learns some difficult life lessons when he accepts an internship with a surly, world-famous artist. And lastly, "Breathe" explores the true meaning of having a crush. Told from the overly romanticized writings of a teen-ager for his classmate, "Breathe" depicts the haunting beauty of first love.
