“Don't threaten me with love, baby. Let's just go walking in the rain.”
Billie Holiday

“You've got to have something to eat, and a little love in your life before you can hold still for any damn body's sermon on how to behave.”
Billie Holiday

“Here is unfenced existence”
Philip Larkin, The Whitsun Weddings

“Miss Murphy in first grade

wrote its name in chalk

across the board and told us

it was roaring down the storm tracks

of the milky way at frightful speed

and if it wandered off its course

and smashed into the earth

there'd be no school tomorrow.”
Stanley Kunitz

“I dropped my hoe and ran into the house and started to write this poem, 'End of Summer.’ It began as a celebration of wild geese. Eventually the geese flew out of the poem, but I like to think they left behind the sound of their beating wings.”

Rob Rosen Sarah, hi. Hope all is well. Since we’re Goodreads friends, I thought I’d share my latest novel, Midlife Crisis, with you.

"Rob Rosen does madcap gay humor better than anyone else writing today. Midlife Crisis is no exception." - Neil Plakcy, author of The Mahu Investigations

I hope you can pick up a copy. As a special thanks for your time, feel free to message me on Facebook ( for a free PDF copy of any of my other 9 novels, which you can find here:

All the best,

Rob Rosen

Jeremy Thanks for the friendship, Sarah!

Here’s wishing you a fantastic day filled with fabulous fates, fanciful festivities, and frolicking phantom footstools.

I was wondering if you'd do me the honor of reading about my debut novel, Vacation, which recently made the Bram Stoker Award Preliminary Ballot. Your support would mean a lot to me. If you'd like to do me this honor, feel free to vist my site here:
