He lives secure in the knowledge that even the worst of dreams, too, can come true.Mr. Skirs style is precise and his hand is accurate as he describes what it means to be human and therefore vulnerable - not only to the designs of others but to ones own self. Boychick is a novel about those who have never grown up - but it is not for children.Mr. Skir is a writer of both fiction and non-fiction. His work has appeared in many magazines including Evergreen Review and Commentary. This is his first acknowledged novel.
