A slow read, but an intriguing story

Wayne Clark’s ‘He and She’ reads at a slow pace that isn’t for everyone. After its slow start I rather enjoyed this relaxing look into the main character’s mind. As a fan of character driven fiction I found this novel to be a refreshing take on story telling that showed this writer has some life experience in the real world.

Kit Caymen, better known as K-Man starts out a bit bitter and jaded. In the beginning I didn’t think he was going to be a likable character, but as I read on my opinion changed. Kit is likable enough, but more than likable he’s relocatable and real. That to me is more important than a lead character everyone can fall in love with.

Kit’s journey through the novel is a long twisting road of self exploration through interpersonal relationships and bdsm. I feel that the kink is kept light enough that it wouldn’t scare anyone away. Even someone who considered themselves to be totally vanilla could enjoy this intellectual novel about kink and the blurred lines between love, sex, and obsession.

It reminds me of a coming of age story for older generations. I believe after reading this novel that coming of age stories aren’t something we merely live once. I believe that we live them again and again through out our lives.

Wayne Clark did a fantastic job of looking into the mind of his main character and bringing him to life and showing everything – the good, the bad, and the ugly. He has a very honest voice that put me at easy and allowed me to enjoy his writing without restraint.

If you’re looking for a slow and easy read that makes you think and feel ‘He and She’ is worth checking out.

Wayne is a Montreal based writer, editor and translator.
