The first day of summer foretells new beginnings for John Moore, a renowned, yet emotionally stalled artist, when he notices Mark Ormond, a guarded young poet, on Southern California's Will Rogers State Beach. After John cajoles him, Mark agrees to sit for a portrait he intends to present as an anniversary gift to his long-time lover, Edward Bloom. A famous actor away shooting a film, Edward's relationship with Mark is strained, but Mark hopes to force the issue with the painting. Over the course of the summer in Santa Monica Canyon, a deep friendship develops between Mark and John, challenged by the surprise revelation that they share an unhappy history. As events unfold, both men come to insights and resolutions about life, the value they place on their work in the arts, and lastly, their desire to reconnect and commit to life and to love.

About the Author:

Gregory Hinton is an author and a filmmaker. He has written three critically acclaimed novels including Cathedral City, Desperate Hearts, and The Way Things Ought to Be. Hinton's film credits include Circuit, It's My Party, and Getting It Right. He lives in Los Angeles.

From Booklist:

Poet and college teacher Mark Ormand, tall, slender, just turned 30, dealing with his father's recent death, rests on Will Rogers State Beach, oblivious to the interest acclaimed painter John Moore shows in him despite the many other buff, tanned men on the surrounding sand. Moore's 20 years in Santa Monica Canyon have seen the death of its onetime bohemian character and the rise of real estate agents pitching $5 million homes to reality-TV producers. He is also suffering from painter's block. Mark has lived with supercloseted Oscar-winner Edward Bloom for 10 years, and early on, Hinton hints at trouble in paradise when Mark "quickly closes the big door behind him, gobbled up by the small mansion like a party canapé." Hinton gracefully shows Mark's feelings of invisibility growing apace with Bloom's celebrity, so when Eddie spends months away filming, and John asks Mark to sit for him, there follows a summer of heartfelt growth and insight sure to please gay-fiction readers.
