Reader Reviews

Trenchant satire — Galvin’s chosen genre for savaging hypocrisy — is a tricky one to pull off. He succeeds with a steady hand and an assured style. But he has a bigger surprise in store: behind the scathing witticisms are characters we grow increasingly fond of as they themselves grew in awareness. Highly recommended!
The best book I have read in years. I don’t want to give away any of the plot, but I could not put the book down. It is not normally the type of book that appeals to me but after a friend suggested I read it, I can only say thanks. It gave me much to think about and I will read it again in the near future.
A vibrant, witty and timely exploration of gender, sexuality and American politics in all its tabloid glory. Galvin obviously cares for his characters and their trials and tribulations and deftly explores what it means to be human in a refreshing and often hilarious fashion. A brilliant read from start to finish.

If you like gender bending suspense, political intrigue, satire, or dark humor is your thing, this witty novel will keep you laughing and guessing.

Set in contemporary New York,  it’s a funny book for adults, filled with observations and situations that will make you think twice and maybe challenge some of your own ideas about sexuality.
