Synopsis:
Ralph Eckhart meets "Thersites" on the Internet. The manager of a Greenwich Village bookstore and politically to the left, Ralph agrees to an F2F (face-to-face) meeting with Thersites in Washington, D.C., where his friend Nancy writes speeches for a popular woman senator. With his penchant for Shakespearean drama, Ralph should have seen the elements gathering for tragedy...or farce. Thersites proves to be a young, attractive, and enthusiastic lover. He is also Republican, in the closet, right-wing, and the author of a tell-all book that spreads gossip about several Washington women, including a footnote about a lesbian affair between a speechwriter and a "happily married" senator. In a town where rumors can kill a career, such words may be fatal. And despite his passion, Ralph is disturbed by his new lover's politics...and then stunned at being charged with his murder. Christopher Bram joins dark satire with chilling suspense as Ralph is arrested for first-degree homicide and becomes a "cause" in the gay community.

Review:
Christopher Bram is one of the most praised writers of gay fiction, and Gossip is perhaps his best book to date. An incisive, savvy political thriller, Gossip tells the story of Ralph Eckhart, a denizen of the gay East Village and ACT UP member, who meets and starts an affair with Bill O'Connor, a closeted gay Republican journalist. After Ralph dumps Bill with an angry phone call (that has been taped), and O'Connor is soon found murdered, the police think they know who did it. Beautifully plotted and written, Christopher Bram has written a novel of contemporary gay politics that is as complex and exhilarating as our lives.
