The true story of a stuttering homosexual and his race car

Author: James Robert O’Brien

Take one shy Irishman—a recovering stutterer and a closeted homosexual—and transport him from Dublin to Vancouver in search of sci-fi stardom and himself. This honest, uplifting and painfully funny memoir is about love, soapboxes and why you should never lie on national TV. It’s the story of how the Beast that almost killed Robert ended up saving his life.

I believe a good autobiography should be searingly honest. Just One More Drive, Robert O’Brien’s intimate narrative has this quality in spades.

He brings the reader on a journey through the trials of childhood stuttering that lingers into adulthood with stifling results. We feel his bewilderment when his sexual orientation dawns and his journey towards embracing his sexuality takes up much of the book. The author’s assertion that being gay may not have been his choice but how he relates to it is, was uplifting.

Cars do feature in this wonderfully human story but not too much to matter. I highly recommend it.
