Description - Getting over Homer by Mark O'Donnell

Getting Over Homer, a "coming of middle age" novel, takes a look at heartbreak, aging, the search for home, and the madness of love - in a story that follows the rise and fall and rise and fall of its hope-stricken narrator's two heart-bending love affairs. Our hero is Blue Monahan, who with his fiery twin brother, Red, arrives from the Midwest to try his luck in the Big Apple. Straight Red drifts rapidly into sitcom stardom and marriage, while gay Blue struggles to make it as a songwriter (you probably missed his musical, Odyssey) and to find True Love. First it's Homer, who introduces him to chic New York at the fashionable parties it is his job to throw for the superrich (his motto: "It's a business doing pleasure with you!") and at lush Fire Island retreats. Then, on the rebound, it is sweet, virginal Teddy, who likes to cuddle but is terrified of sex... As Blue labors to recover from these confusing entanglements, he must navigate the seas of family, friendship, career, and masculinity - whatever that is - before finding a safe haven, or at least getting over that seasick feeling.
