Nick has a house in the suburbs, two sex shops in Montreal, a chip on his shoulder, and an insane obsession with fire. Brian is a debonair success until he throws it all away by advertising for sex partners in the personal columns of the newspaper. Jacques is interested in making as much money as a young man with a sculpted body can make. And Roger is a down-and-out reformed alcoholic. No holds are barred in this operatic novel about the lives of contemporary men -- and the women who put up with them. This rambunctious, crazy, intense, and poignant story moves faster than the speed of light.
