Giveaway: Looking After Joey by David Pratt
Recently I had the pleasure of reading Looking After Joey by an author who was new to me, David Pratt. The book is incredibly entertaining – the writing beautiful and observationally witty. It has a gorgeous cover and there is this fun and sexy video that goes with the book (see the clip below) that kind of helped get me sucked into the book – much like Calvin gets sucked into his TV and a porno movie. Let’s just say it is nothing if not fascinating from here on out. Calvin doesn’t stay in porno world for too long, but porn star Joey Rhodes pops out into Calvin’s world. Calvin, his best friend Peachy, and Joey are in for an adventure…or ten. For my review click here. Or for a very insightful Q&A with David Pratt click here.
David Pratt won a Lambda Literary Award for a previous book, Bob the Book, which I am currently reading. Bob the Book is an another high calibre LGBTQ read. I have to say that I now hold David Pratt’s writing in high esteem, he is a wonderful talent in gay lit. I simply cannot recommend his writing enough.
Looking After Joey is beautifully layered and you can take as much or as little as you want from the book – if you just want to have a bit of a laugh, it is there, if you want some more meaning, it is also there. On the surface “Joey” can be seen as this madcap romp with fascinating schemes devised and a cast of amazingly OTT characters. But underneath all that is true friendship, desire, the need to fit it, and the hope for genuine love and affection.
