Product Description

 This is a combination of a gay West Side Story without the singing and dancing and Romeo and Juliet without the tragic and bloody finale. It is well written, a little outrageous and utterly entertaining.

The authors have created two sets of antagonists who are larger than life and so colorful as to be almost blinding. The Queenies glitter like exotic birds, but these birds hiss and strike with all the innocence and good intention of a cobra. The Meanies, with their unseasonal leather and their overblown attempts to look and act as mean as possible, don't project quite the amount of venom that their rivals do, but they are just as instrumental in creating misery for the two heroes. These are characters that you love to hate, and their over-the-top antics frequently left me shaking my head and laughing.

Robert and Blakely contrast completely with these two gangs. They are just two guys - two normal, nice guys - who are trying to escape for a little while. Next to the Queenies and the Meanies, they look like bewildered innocents dropped unexpectedly into a twisted Wonderland. One can't help but sympathize with them even while chucking at their strange situation.

Surf `n' Turf is overtly humorous, but the story also takes a step back and looks at the entire Seaside scene from a scientific and anthropological angle. We may laugh at the comic nature of these rival gangs, but they also exhibit the potential dangers of anonymity and the mob mentality. The men in these two gangs may just be play-acting thugs, but at what point does a game of make-believe get out of control and step over into reality?
