When Neal Tate, a just-out-of-rehab NYC party columnist, falls for Dewalt, a Harlem drug dealer he meets at a gay bathhouse, he discovers that navigating an honest relationship is a lot more difficult than chasing down the perfect pair of skinny jeans.

Neal finds support from his fashion-loving friends: Rovvy, a blond boy-toy married to Andres Palamos, the shady millionaire

This was a unique book; although it does have a romance arc, it's really much more literary gay fiction. The prose style is gorgeous. It's marked by the complete absence of cliches, realistic dialogue, lyrical descriptive details and the ability to describe intense emotion without sentimentality. There's not a lot of m/m romance which can say the same. Hey, I love the genre too, but it's nice to take a little vacation from it.

One of the highest marks I can give this book is in regards to the de

This was by far one of the best books I've ever read. I fell in love with Dewalt and Neal. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys male/male romance.
Received the book for free through Goodreads First Reads Contest.

Some sad, superficial, and ignorantly racist bullsh*t if ever I've read it. I won't even waste my time being angry over it.

What can I say? It's a strange read......

**with some spoilers**

Neal reminds me of Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City. Both a writer of a column and addicted to

big names clothes/shoes/bags just being a column writer. It's the same with Neal.

The pairing was weird.... not because Dewalt was black and have gold teeth :-)
Everything between the two men was a real contradiction. I can't see how the attr

Midwestern boy Neal Tate explored his gay sexuality to the absolute ultimate when he landed in New York City. Neal dove into the lifestyle so well that he ended up in rehab with an alcohol and drug addiction.

Navigating life without the crutch of liquor, in particular, is a whole new world for Neal. With the help of his closest friend Rovvie he’s got a job writing a column he titles ‘Bergdorf Boys’ for Pop magazine. He’s also responsible for some of their fashion layout as an editor.

Brilliant. Scott is one of the few writers who write with the honesty and clarity of a Jean Genet and the style of a Hollinghurst.
