Performance artist Tim Miller unleashes his childhood demons and adult trials-by-fire in this bizarre, fascinating account of his life. Through humor, memory, fantasy, gratuitous sex, and unabashed honesty, Shirts & Skin charts one gay man's take on the challenges of the last two decades of the millennium.
“When his high school gym teacher divided the class into two teams, Shirts and Skins, for a game of touch football, Tim Miller knew "I was always going to be on the team where the boys took their clothes off and got close to each other." In this revealing, humorous, frequently sexy memoir, Miller, one of the famed NEA Four, looks at some of the major events that have shaped his life: the growth of his first pubic hair, becoming the love slave of a John Travolta look-alike, shopping for a dog, deciding whether to take the HIV antibody test, and searching for the perfect soul mate.“
