Tommy is twenty-nine, lives and loves in London, and has a morbid fear of the c word (commitment), the b word (boyfriend), and the f word (forgetting to call his drug dealer before the weekend). But when he begins to feel the urge to become a father, he starts to wonder if his chosen lifestyle can ever make him happy. Faced with the choice of maintaining his hedonistic, drugged-out, and admittedly fabulous existence or chucking it all in favor of a far more sensitive, fulfilling—and let's face it—sober lifestyle, Tommy finds himself in a true quandary. Through a series of adventures and misadventures that lead him from London nightspots to New York bedrooms and back, our boy Tommy manages to answer some of life's most pressing questions—and even some he never thought to ask.

Reviews

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
