Some Men are Lookers by Ethan Mordden

Book Description

With Dennis Savage; his Absolute Boy lover, Little Kiwi; cowboy hunk Carlo; the bizarre, scheming "elf-child" Cosgrove; and narrator Bud - along with a host of new characters - Mordden lays bare the emotional landscape of the city within a city that is Gay Manhattan. From drag queen Miss Faye ("Bette Midler crossed with Hitler") and Peter Keene, a closeted Ivy Leaguer who comes out with such complete abandon that he disrupts a dinner party with his hungers, to Zuleto, a stunning Venetian youth of frustratingly casual sensuality, and Vic Astarchos, a porn star/hustler of mythic proportions who, tragically, lets his true self slip through the cracks in his professional pose, Some Men Are Lookers brings to life the "scene" in all its diverse and contradictory elements.

Author Biography - Ethan Mordden

"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.
