9780759645318: Sparkle: The Queerest Book You'll Ever Love

Often hilarious, sometimes touching, frequently madcap, and irresistibly charming, the stories in each chapter follow two San Francisco gay men from one adventure to the next. Told to you, the reader, as if were actually there, learn how they came out, had their first sexual experiences, got pierced and then tattooed, became drag queens, adopted a nearly full grown son, placed a personal ad, and grew up to become the best of friends. Along the way, find out how many people wanted Sparkle dead and discover how much fun the bars and back streets of San Francisco really are. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and, in the end, you may just learn a thing or two. Your mamma never told you that being queer could be this much fun.

From the Publisher:

Having read the myriad of gay fiction books available today, and realizing that so much of gay culture is simply not written about, Rob Rosen set out to cover it all. His characters represent those gay boys out there that like to do things in wacky excess. From drinking and drugs, to tattoos and piercings, from sex in strange places to plain, old strange sex, the main players in “Sparkle”, Secret and Sparkle, manage to get themselves into one mess after another. But what comes across to the reader most from chapter to hilarious chapter, is the love and sense of family gay people form between themselves. Touching on all aspects of gay popular culture, Rob seeks to educate and to entertain his readers in full stories and short vignettes in ways not typically tried in the past by many gay authors.
