Looking for Brothers, Michael Row's first essay collection (1999), won international critical acclaim, heralding the arrival of one of the most perceptive and insightful journalist essayists writing on popular culture and gay themes today. Other Men's Sons contains the best of his creative non-fiction written between 2000 and 2005. The journalism includes profiles of the coming-out story of Playgirl magazine's 30th anniversary centerfold, Scott Merritt; Philip Ing, creative director of the legendary MAC Cosmetics AIDS fundraiser, Fashion Cares; and exclusive interviews with diverse trailblazers, from openly gay horror superstar Clive Barker, to firebrand minister and gay rights activist The Reverend Brent Hawkes. The personal essays cover a range of subjects including the power of erotica, the beauty of men, the real reason for gay marriage, and the importance of the chosen family; these will resonate with many readers, gay and straight alike.
