Ethan Mordden's "Buddies" trilogy--I've a Feeling We're Not in Kansas Anymore, Buddies, Everyone Loves You--has, in less then a decade, gained classic status in gay literature. Now Mordden treats us to a fourth and final volume, Some Men are Lookers. Mordden's tightly-knit band of New York gay men survived disco, Fire Island, and AIDS; now they are left to make their way into the next century by forging new relationships, bonds of friendship, and love. Mordden's writing is as pithy and funny as ever, but he never avoids the hard stories or feelings and all 11 stories resonate with truth, emotion, and a clear-eyed look at what it means to be an urban, gay man today.

About the Author:

Some Men Are Lookers, Ethan Mordden's much lauded fourth volune in his "Buddies" cycle, follows the exploits of his best-loved characters--Dennis Savage, Little Kiwi, Carlo, the "elf-child" Cosgrove, and narrator Bud--as he lays bare the emotional landscape of the city within a city that is Gay Manhattan. Blending the comic, the sexy, and the at once idealistic and realistic, these stories are Ethan Mordden at his very best.
