Novels and porn stars...David Pratt animates both. Three years after his fanciful tale of a living book, Bob the Book [and Kindle], won the Lambda Literary Award for debut gay fiction, he returns with a second novel about a porn star who steps through the tv screen and into his protagonists' lives, Looking After Joey [and Kindle]. His publisher, Wilde City Press, says:
"From the author of Bob the Book comes a funny, fast-paced, touching tale of love, laughter, family of choice and fabulousness! Wouldn’t it be great if a porn character stepped out of the TV, into your life? Well, be careful what you wish for. Because that’s how Calvin and Peachy end up looking after Joey. And teaching him everything he needs to know to be be a gay man in New York City. His final exam? A fabulous Labor Day party on Fire Island. But first, they all have to get invited. This will involve a rogues’ gallery of eccentric Manhattanites, including portly, perspiring publicist Bunce van den Troell; theatrical investor Sir Desmond Norma; studly thespian Clive Tidwell-Smidgin; lubricant king Fred Pflester; and a mysterious young man named Jeffrey. Tender, wise, witty and often utterly deranged, Looking After Joey will make you wish that you, too, had a porn character sitting at your kitchen table, pointing at the toast and asking, 'What's this called again?'"
