Rated 4 out of 5 by from A bisexual About A Boy The blurb on the cover says it all. A bisexual About A Boy. I loved About A Boy, I love Alan Cumming and his whimsical albeit sexual humour, so I love this novel. A great combination to make me laugh and long for my favourite actor to continue writing.

Editorial Reviews

"Randy [and] ribald . . . a bisexual About a Boy, only with lots more shagging and partying. . . . A naughty diversion. B+" - Entertainment Weekly

"Alan Cumming is a frolicky pan-sexual sex symbol for the new millennium." - New York Observer

"Queer as Folk meets About a Boy. [Cumming is] a better novelist than Ethan Hawke or Rupert Everett." - Time Out New York
