The "Dear Henry" Letters

For two years Arthur was the humorist for the London magazine, reFRESH. In each issue of this gay publication he wrote a letter to his exasperating and fictional lover, Henry, explaining the never-ending reasons why they must end their relationship. But as we all know, sometimes breaking up is really hard to do.



"A laugh riot of epic proportions..."– Darien Moya, Pants Off Reviews

"Writing comedy is not easy and writing intelligent comedy is even more difficult. It is a quality that I’ve always believed is inherent and not learned and Mr. Wooten possesses this innate talent in spades. Characterized by an excellent comedic sense, his writing is highly imaginative with a sharp sophistication." – Indigene, The Indie Reviewer

“Wooten’s writing is honest, funny, moving…these may be ‘shorts’ but they made a big impression on me.” – Clayton Littlewood, author of Goodbye To Soho and DWB: Tales Of Soho

“Wooten's knack at mastering comedy through extraordinary situations is unsurpassed. If you loved his ‘fruit series’ you’re going to relish what's inside his ‘shorts’!” – Gregory G. Allen, author of Well With My Soul

“...quick wit, tender romance, and fresh prose, Wooten proves once again why he is a master of his craft—on both sides of the pond.” – Brian Centrone, author of An Ordinary Boy
