Dorian (Michael McMillian of the WB series "What I Like About You") is an upstate New York teen whose agonies of adolescent adjustment are as irksome as they are ordinary.
Set around the early '90s, pic covers a period of five years or more, and despite brightness of individual sequences, a stronger narrative arc's punch is lacking --this is horizontal rather than vertical storytelling, simply lining up one incident after another.
Dorian is labeled neurotic, depressive, a social pariah and "stereotypical gay" (by himself, even).

 village voice > books > Dorian: An Imitation by Will Self by J.Y. Yeh
Dorian originated as a screenplay commissioned in 1998 by Britain's Channel 4 Films; when Self withdrew from the project, he decided to rewrite his script as a novel.
Dorian is actually a successful design-mag editor, not a deranged murderer; the whole story has been a fantasy.
In the infamous preface to Dorian Gray, Wilde wrote, "It is the spectator, and not life, that art really mirrors." Call me sentimental, but Self's sympathetic touch makes his remembrance of things past a worthy, if less witty, successor to the original.

This notion is perhaps related to Dorian's concept of 'tip' in language shift (Dorian 1981:51; Dorian 1989:9; McConvell 1991).
The Dorian concept of institutionalised gender definition by means of same-sex rituals reflects a mode of socio-cultural performance among many peoples in the dawn of Indo-European history around 1200 BC.
This concept involved males in rituals which sought the transmission of qualities such as manliness and bravery, together with the development of powers, skills, and experiences seen as specifically male, from individuals in one generation to the youth of the next.
