“A gay coming-of-age story that’s rip-roaringly funny and sympathetic.”—People

David Sedaris and Sandra Bernhard rolled into one, Mike Albo offers his own unique, witty, and touching tale on being young, single, and gay in today''s media-obsessed culture.

Juxtaposing a trip to his childhood home—where he has retreated to try to make some sense of his hectic existence in New York City—with memories of growing up gay in seventies suburbia, Albo creates "Mike Albo."
