Most men do not keep diaries…at least they would not admit to it! Martin’s Story reveals the inner thoughts and secrets of a man who is thought by his family to be “Mr. Nice Guy,” the son that any mother can be proud of…the cousin that any cousin would hope for. Martin is all of those things, but he is more. He has a life of his own that does not fit into any neat category. His desire to love and be loved does not meet the formula of society’s norm. One could read this novel feeling that he has finally read a man’s private diary…and perhaps he has!
