THE GROOM WILL KEEP HIS NAME And Other Vows I've Made About Race, Resistance, and Romance

by | Read by Matt Ortile

Biography & Memoir • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Author Matt Ortile narrates his lively, introspective memoir about his experiences in a new culture. After immigrating to the U.S. from the Philippines, he navigates both acceptance and rejection in his various professional and social circles. He delivers his work with vibrant energy. The listener can feel who he is when he speaks of his family, sexual interactions, tight-knit circle of friends, and desire to belong. His story is bold, honest, and direct, especially as he embraces who he is as a gay Filipino man. There are moments of warmth, particularly when he enters vulnerable spaces that require him to reflect on his intimate relationships. Ortile is quite humorous in his tone at times. This is a journey worth taking. T.E.C. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2020]
