  • Nick Alexander - The Case Of The Missing Boyfriend •    • Nick Alexander - Fifty Reasons to Say Goodbye

Case Of The Missing BoyfriendC.C. is nearly forty and other than her name (which she hates so much she can’t bring herself to use it) everything about her life appears to be wonderful: she has a high powered job in advertising, a great flat in Primrose Hill, and a wild bunch of friends to spend her weekends with. And yet she feels like the Titanic – slowly, inexorably, and against all expectation, sinking. 
For despite her indisputable success, C.C. would rather be shovelling shit on a farm than selling it to the masses – would rather be snuggling on the sofa with The Missing Boyfriend than playing star fag-hag in London’s latest coke-spots. But opportunities to find The Missing Boyfriend are rarer than an original metaphor, and CC’s body-clock is ticking so loudly that at times she can barely hear her mother wittering on about her own Moroccan boyfriend.Could her best friend be right? Could her past really be preventing her from moving on? And if she unlocks that particular box, will the horrors within simply drift away and leave her free? Or will they sink her?
If she can shake off the past and learn to trust again, will she stop attracting freaks and find The Missing Boyfriend? Or will she just end up tethered and gagged at the bottom of the stairs?

Praise for The Case Of The Missing Boyfriend
“A bittersweet, bang-up-to-date take on the eternal quest for love. CC is a compulsively likeable Everywoman, part Doris Day, part Bridget Jones, her life laid bare with Nick Alexander’s trademark mix of forensic detail and warm-hearted comedy.” – Rupert Smith, author of Man’s World
“By turns comic and dramatic, this deft novel will delight readers both queer and otherwise.” – Richard Labonte, Book Marks, Q Syndicate.

 • Anthony McDonald • Getting Orlando •     • James Maker • Autofellatio •

Sleight Of Hand

When Oliver loses his job and his lover in the space of a few months,
he wonders if he will ever know happiness again.

Unexpectedly, his life is transformed when he encounters an extraordinarily beautiful red-head on a train just minutes before a stranger in a pub offers him money to courier a mysterious package out of the country. Opportunities for cash, travel and adventure are suddenly within his grasp, as well as, amazingly, the young man to share them with.
But when dreams come true, the aftermath is seldom predictable, and Oliver finds himself drawn into the outer orbits of a shadowy world of art theft and drug smuggling, and into a relationship whose roller-coaster progress will test him to his limits.

Getting Orlando is a story of adventure, travel and romantic obsession.

Praise for Anthony McDonald’s writing:“The ebb and flow of romantic friendship, the perplexities of maturing from boy to man, and the puzzle of how to fit gay self into a straight world: these eternal queer questions are explored with astute insight - and bracing erotic interludes - in McDonald's stellar, thoughtful novel.” – Richard Labonte (Blue Sky Adam)

Sleight Of Hand

Winner of the Polari First Book Prize 2011

Paul Burston, Chair of the judges, said:
"The judges felt that Autofellatio stood out with its humour, honesty and heartfelt exploration of British queer life over the last 30 years. It deals with the hardships of growing up gay in a way that is witty, endlessly quotable and, above all, brave. The hard-won wisdom and tenacity of this story is also reflected in the way in which the book evolved."

“Bloody Brilliant” – JULIE BURCHILL

“Glitteringly epigrammatic, it’s a glam-rock Naked Civil Servant in court shoes. But funnier. And tougher.” – MARK SIMPSON

Autofellatio is the memoir of singer, lyricist, writer and occasional actor James Maker.
It begins with his teenage years in punk-era London, moving through the counter-cultural 1980s with an account of the indie group Raymonde and his association with pop artist, Morrissey. Visiting the adventures of rock group RPLA, the filming of "Middleton’s Changeling", and the party years of the 1990s, it closes with his relocation to, and observations on, life in Spain.

Richard Labonte on Blue Sky Adam
"The durability of a teenager's first real love, the ebb and flow of romantic friendship, the perplexities of maturing from boy to man, and the puzzle of how to fit gay self into a straight world: these eternal queer questions are explored with astute insight - and bracing erotic interludes - in McDonald's stellar, thoughtful sequel to Adam."


Anthony McDonald's legendary novel, Adam.

Adam
Adam is a delightful sixteen-year-old who does well in school and spends his spare time practising the cello. Or that's what his parents think.

But there is another side to him, which comes to the fore when he falls for a labourer called Sylvain and realises that friendships have the potential to be more than platonic. The results are explosive in this passionate story of illicit romance and teenage angst over one long, hot summer in the French countryside.

The Dark Paintings

Wealthy, depraved and hugely gifted, Luigi Teramo likes to think of himself as a cross between a pagan fertility god and an evil wizard.

Dark Paintings



Luigi has deliberately rejected his youthful talent for art in favour of making money, and of spending his fortune on young men and drugs. But he cannot bring himself to destroy the fruits of that rejected talent - his early paintings. And as the years pass, it starts to seem that those paintings possess a terrible power. A power that will cause Luigi's life to spin out of control, will destroy almost all who get close to him, and will end by involving him in blackmail, and murder.
The Dark Paintings is both a thriller and a black comedy - entertaining, shocking and profoundly disturbing.

'A tinge of the supernatural, a titillating whiff of the perverse, and - topping it off - a compelling miasma of creepiness' Books To Watch Out For
