This True Crime story of the "Last Call Killer," who targeted Gay men in 80s and 90s NYC is a gripping, tragic account told in the manner of your favorite true crime podcasts. It also serves as a history lesson about the struggle for Queer rights in a time when being out was dangerous, and the gay community was being disproportionately stigmatized and shunned because of AIDS. 

Informative and thrilling in equal measure. I couldn't put it down.

This is not the story of a "great love." This collection of stories is representative of real life, filled with the wild and weird cast of characters we spend our time with as we pursue our goal of connection. Many queer people seek the love our biological families couldn't (or wouldn't) provide us through our romantic relationships. In Purnell's deptiction of various boyfriends, lovers, and one night stands, he paints a picture of the community gay men create for themselves.

Raunchy, hilarious, and heartfelt, this book is sure to entertain and provoke.
