94 is a pocket sized book of a sweetly potent story set in 1994 filled with intimacy and young relationships. It is a cameo of a novel, a miniature portrait made in relief, existing daintily between the second and third dimensions. Who sat for the portrait: a 19-year old boy in 1994, going to college in the South, gay and Asian, who will become female by 2014. The Stuff into which the portrait was carved; the feelings aroused by boys he desired, the feelings he wanted to have; feelings that are historically specific, that are products of a specific moment in time, space, and cultural evolution, when those days of innocence were actually defined by more manipulation, heartlessness and cruelty than today.
