This book is good. It is for those who yearn for a good replacement for Queer As Folk. This feels like Queer As Folk meets Sex & The City, in New York. Delicious, entertaining and fast-paced. ( )

Book description
Gulliver Takes Manhattan (first published as Gulliver Travels) is the tale of twenty-something Gulliver Leverenz, who abandons sunny L.A. for a fresh start in New York. He’s leaving behind his family, his friends—and one bastard ex-boyfriend who can’t take a hint. With no money, job, or direction, Gully gratefully accepts an invitation to crash with his former fraternity brother Todd. As luck would have it, Todd lives in Hell’s Kitchen, New York’s hottest “gayborhood,” and is a rising star in the gay nightlife scene, complete with a crew of incredibly hot friends. Not long after, Gully snags a job with a talent agent and even finds himself a new boyfriend. There’s just one catch: Gulliver knows this budding relationship could get him in a lot of trouble. And inevitably, it does just that. Gulliver’s streak of good fortune soon takes a turn for the miserable as his choices unleash an onslaught of catastrophes that leaves him in a tragic and seemingly hopeless situation beneath the skyscrapers. But Gully’s tougher than he realizes and is determined to prove, for once and for all, that he has what it takes to make it in New York. By turns exciting, sad, and hysterically funny, Gulliver Takes Manhattan is a refreshingly candid tale of one man’s quest to stake a place for himself in the greatest city in the world.
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"When Gulliver Leverenz abandons LA to make a fresh start in New York, he leaves behind his family, his friends--and one bastard exboyfriend. It's certainly an impusle move: Gully has no job, no money, and no direction. What he does have is a former fraternity brother with a posh apartment, a crew of incredibly hot friends, a reputation as a rising star in the gay nightlife scene. As luck would have it, Gully soon snags a job with a talent agent and even finds himself a new boyfriend. There's just one catch: Gulliver knows this budding relationship could get him in a lot of trouble. And inevitably, it does just that. The whole mess blows up in his face, leading to an onslaught of catastrophes that leaves him in a tragic and seemingly hopeless situation beheath the skyscrapers. But Gulliver is tougher than he reaslizes and is determined to prove, once and for all, that he has what it takes to make it in New York. By turns exciting, sad, and hysterially funny, Gulliver Takes Manhattan is a candid tale of one man's adventures in the greatest city in the world."--cover, p.4.… (more)
