Andy Zeffer is the author of Going Down in La-la Land, a novel that, aside for being turned into the movie by the same name, is deeply connected with the gay-themed movie The Fluffer. In all these past experiences, the author was deeply involved with the social environment of Los Angeles, with all the implications: Los Angeles is big and disconnected, but is also sun and beaches. With the Barbizon, Andy Zeffer moves from Los Angeles to New York City, a move that also happened in Zeffer's real life, a move that is reflected in the story: while New York City is a metropoli like Los Angeles, the feeling is less disconnected and more of close environment; even when the characters aren't inside a bedroom, the feeling was of a "closed" setting. Also the mood of the story is less "sun and beaches" and more "dark and cloudy weather", it was like Annika, the main character, was living in the dark and just before the end, she has the chance to get a glimpse of the sun. Very nice and quick short story from an author you don't have to miss.
