Throwing Stones at Jonathan is not so much a novel as a collection of thoughts. The narrator, a young gay man working in a cinema, looks back over his life to date; his childhood, past loves and relationships, isolating those moments or events that meant something, like snapshots or rushes from a film. At the same time he questions his love affair with his Argentinean boyfriend, Garcia. Occasional references to notable events provide a time setting.
While beautifully written, almost poetic at times, I found it hard to maintain interest, perhaps due to the lack of any real development. By its mature the recollection of events is all over the place, there being no coherence or logic. Some of the short passages are truly delightful, which makes it all the more frustrating as one would have love to see such passages expanded. Maybe this is something to pick up to cover just a few pages at a time rather than for sustained reading. ( )
