"Impossible to believe that this is a first novel. It feels so assured, so wise; and the "edge" of the title teaches us so much about internalized morality that the text is almost a manual of emotional intelligence.... Now, at last, the Age of the Internet is producing its own fine young novelists; one of them wrote this book."
--Frank Delaney, NY Times Bestselling author of Ireland a Novel

"If you've ever wondered what life would be like if jealousy were considered a bad habit to be minimized rather than a sign of true love to be celebrated, give this a read. I don't know any better window into the realities of such a life."
--Dr. Christopher Ryan, NY Times Bestelling co-author of Sex at Dawn

The first novel by Guy New York, The Island on the Edge of Normal, follows James from New York City to the coast of Maine where he struggles to forget his past by destroying his memories one page at a time. As he settles into his new life, he finds himself falling in love with Issa, the married women whose house he is sharing. When he learns that Issa and Paul have an open marriage he's forced to make decisions he's tried hard to avoid. 
But the more comfortable he becomes, the more his past returns, until suddenly it arrives on the island in the form of Jane, the woman he's been trying so hard to forget. Even as James learns about non-jealous husbands, handsome tourists, polyamory, and growing up on the edge of normal, he's still consumed by guilt, fear, and a deep-seated anger that he doesn't fully understand and can't let go. 
A tale of love, lust, and redemption, The Island on the Edge of Normal pushes the boundaries of what it means to create, destroy, and forgive.

About the Author:

Guy New York is an author, designer, and degenerate who spends most his time either writing about sex or having it. Sometimes he does both at the same time, much to the chagrin of his partners. He is the creator of the blog Quickies in New York, which has been featured in Playboy Espanol, Violet Blue’s Tiny Nibbles, and Fleshbot, among many others. In 2011 he and his partner in crime, The Dirty Gentleman, were voted #1 on Between My Sheet’s list of the top 100 sex bloggers. He has published numerous short stories, including Love & Kink, Hana, and Winter to Spring. This is his first novel.
