The Claustrophobic Closet is the first of two planned autobiographical works. This first half recounts Mr. McDowell's early life through his early twenties. He describes what it was like to grow up in a semi-dysfunctional family while struggling with his increasingly confusing and frustrating sexual desires. From a small town in Wyoming to a Catholic monastery, this work shows how difficult it can be to come to terms with being gay. Not much is held back in this work, so be warned: sex and sexuality are thoroughly discussed in parts. Highly recommended for anyone who is struggling with their sexuality and people who have family members who have recently come out!
