However, both had made different appeals to its readers. Some find it funny, while others believe that there are deeper messages in the story than an extraordinary love affair between Michael, a straight-headed bisexual, and Ricky, his partner who’s a little loose in the head. In humanities, it is discussed that there are different factors that affect an artist; who, in this case, is Jimmy Alcantara.
Of course, we cannot conclude that the story is just a narrative of the writer’s experiences. But it is possible to say that his writings may be the reflection of his thoughts, which are likewise the result of his experiences. If I were to guess who Jimmy Alcantara was, I would say that he is a man with an open mind and a liberated personality. I also think that he is a conscientious individual who strongly believes in the teachings of his religion.
I came to this thought because if you will look closely at the story, its characters are in a guy-to-guy relationship, which shows how possibly liberal Alcantara is. However, the relationship of the two characters doesn’t prove to be a good one, instead, they suffer a lot because their relationship was, according to the sequel, sinful in many probable terms. I guess it may be true that a reader can guess or assess parts of the personality of the writer. In the case of Jimmy Alcantara, these are my assessments in accordance to his stories.
