Friend needs 'slashy' books for future dissertation.
My mature friend is starting uni next year and has already decided her subject . . .(the lecturer has yet to say yes or no considering shes not started yet but she's eager) She said she needs books that are can either be viewed as slashy or have canonically gay characters but no trashy gay romance novels. She needs a wide range of genre and demographic and publishing date so anything goes, inc. romance but not trashy . . . I'm sure you know the ones I'm talking about.
Anyways, she asked me and I was stumped so I thought you lovely people could give her a hand?
