Hyatt’s novel brings together the grittily realistic with the transcendent, and the result is a beguiling character study..." - KIRKUS

Hyatt has created a wonderful portrait of four individuals and the relationship they form in combination. Sexually charged and scarred both physically and psychically, their shortcomings and strengths meld into a group dynamic unlike anything most of us will experience. That alone should be reason enough to read this, but then there’s Hyatt’s prose, which is deft and beautiful. It’s stealth prose–you don’t realize how deeply it cuts until it’s too late. Highly readable and highly recommended.                            - Out In Print

Martin Hyatt proves once again why he is revered as one of the most creative and talented young writers of our generation - and deservingly so. Having been raised in a small town in Louisiana, I was immediately swept up in the colorful journey of the intriguing characters in this story and on many different levels, I even felt a deep, personal connection to them. --Brian Edwards, multi-award-winning producer and writer.

"There’s a certain poetry of loneliness at work in Beautiful Gravity. A loneliness specific to the outsider who is nonetheless firmly rooted within the smothering small community of his birth. And a certain loneliness that recalls the best of Tennessee Williams, as well as a joint cadence, which is perhaps enhanced by the small-town setting placed just outside New Orleans...It is a serious book. A thoughtful work. Its language is quiet, almost whispered, but it is also potent. It clings to the retinas; it huddles in the reader’s heart....Martin Hyatt has proven himself an artist of great merit.""There’s a certain poetry of loneliness at work in Beautiful Gravity.

AUTHOR

I love Beautiful Gravity. Martin Hyatt does not take a false step in it. On top of that, he takes steps I haven't seen taken before. I love how he explodes the Trumpish fence around gay fiction, and has produced a book that is straight and gay and above all, human. Boz is a great character, contradictory at every moment, but in a way that feels authentic to a general lived experience. This book is going to be found by lots of young people, and it will make them want to be writers. It made me want to be one . . . and I am one. - Richard Kramer, Emmy and Peabody award-winning writer, producer, and director .
