    One thought on “Cooper's Hawk”

    1. Okay, I admit it. I began crying on the first or second page of this lovely, heartfelt, and gorgeously-executed short story and didn't finish until I'd read the very last page. I'm not proud of the fact that I, a grown man, was a blubbering mess by the end of this story of love, loss, and redemption (yes), but it's a journey I'd take again and I'm certain with much the same result.But I didn't cry solely because the story is so touching, but because of its artistry. It's not so much that it's a [...]

    2. Review posted at The Armchair Reader.More than any other author who writes "gay" books or stories, I think that Victor Banis has come to be my favorite with his short stories. There is so much craft needed to make a short story really great and I think, a lot of restraint. This story is so touching and heart-warming, combining tone (like a tired body before a nap) and the voice of Mike, solid man of the earth, nearing the end of his life… with just a bit of southern drawl and geriatric snark.I [...]

    3. Reviewed on Hearts On Fire heartsonfirereviews/ Vic Banis is a master storyteller from his days of writing some of the earliest gay pulp fiction to his works today. He is one of those few writers that actually has enough life experience to pour emotions into a story that stirs the reader whether it's a comedy or a western or a beautiful bittersweet short like this one. Mike Patterson and Adam Cooper were married in every real sense of the word. As soul mates they raised five children together, l [...]

    4. 5++ starsThis short story is a masterpiece of gay fiction. It kept me misty-eyed throughout and sobbing at the end. It is so beautifully written and I will surely read many times again. It is a story of love and loss as well as hope. Highly, highly recommend!!

    5. Absolutely beautiful. Poignant and heart wrenching - but in the best way possible. It speaks to a lifetime of love and loss between these two men and their family. Just so well-written - not an extraneous word. I love a good affecting short story and this is perfect example.

    6. Four days after the death of his lover, Mike sits at his rural home grieving for Adam. Mike and Adam’s children flew in for the funeral, and they—two men and two women—do their best to comfort Mike, but there is no comfort for someone who has just lost their soul mate. Strangely enough, a Cooper’s hawk begins flying around the farm, bold as brass and seemingly unafraid of Mike. I say “strangely” because Adam’s last name was Cooper. The children believe Mike is loosing his marbles, [...]

    7. When Mike Patterson’s life partner, Adam Cooper dies he knows a huge part of himself has died with him. After many happy years together, Mike has to face the thought of living life alone, and he’s not sure how he’s going to be able to do that. Even though their children try to coax Mike into keeping strong and working through his grief, Mike continues to have difficulty going through the motions of life…until he spots a hawk that seems to be very interested in him. In his heart, Mike kno [...]

    8. This was a short story, but very moving. A very much believable story too, about two long-term partners: Adam and Mike are simple men with a very ordinary life; both widower with young sons, 3 boys Adam, 2 girls Mike, they found each other and raised their kids together. Just like that, not fancy ceremonies or legal fight, they were both daddies to their five children and shared a good life together.But love cannot do anything against old age and death, and Adam preceded Mike; that was just few [...]

    9. 24 Pages. That is all it took for me to fall in love with the words of Victor J Banis. Cooper’s Hawk is a beautiful tale of timeless love. It is a tale of grief and survival. It is a story of two men who found each other and never wanted to be apart. It is a story that will have you in tears from the opening to the closing words.Full review here:prismbookalliance/2014

    10. This is a short, lovely, sad story of a man mourning the loss of his husband after a long life together. Well-written and just so real in every moment and shade of emotion. Definitely bittersweet so be aware. I was caught by surprise because it ended at about 80% and although the story arc was complete and well done, I was in no way ready to let go. Beautiful.

    11. This story actually had a bit of a Brokeback Mountain feel about it, only - despite Adam's death - with a happy ending.
