Just last week in Introducing ‘Gulliver Travels’ by Justin Luke Zirilli, THE MUST READ book of the decade! (make sure to read it for all sorts of relevant information) we told you all about up-and-coming gay author (and nightlife promoter extraordinaire) Justin Luke and his much acclaimed and awaited debut novel, ‘Gulliver Travels‘ published TODAY.
“Heartbroken and hungry for a new start, Gulliver Leverenz flees his family, friends, and bastard of an ex-boyfriend in Los Angeles, with his sights set on New York City – a place he’s only ever heard of.
With no money, no job, and no direction, Gully lands in NYC’s hottest gayborhood, Hell’s Kitchen, living with his only friend – fraternity brother and current rising gay nightlife star, Todd DiTempto.
From Midtown to Fire Island and everywhere in between, Gulliver sinks fast into the chaotic life of sex, booze, and boys. Just barely scraping by in the city that never sleeps (alone, at least), Gully quickly discovers that this strange, concrete jungle has some major surprises in store. Luckily he has some tricks up his sleeve, and he isn’t afraid to use his claws.”
Timeless, yet contemporary, honest and, at times, heartbreaking, Justin Luke Zirilli’s first novel is a carefully constructed, well painted, steamy portrait of the troubled guy all gays have inside; the best and most unique picture of everyone’s story: a young man who in his quest to get away from his life once and for all, comes to find out that the only thing he can’t escape is himself; and that the past not always stays behind. With a chatty, witty and slightly cynical narration, Gulliver Leverenz takes us through the exciting and incredibly sexy adventure that is his life, living in “America’s greatest, wildest, gayest city”, as he embodies the gorgeous, gay, 20-something spirit and becomes the ultimate NYC boy. He is the fighter you always wanted to be, the daring best friend you always wanted to have, the painfully cool ‘future ex’ you always dreamt of, and his life is manifest that “basically, absolutely anything can happen or not happen at any second!“.
