After twenty years of unwedded bliss to billionaire Jason Wilcox, former chorus boy Javier Rivera (Javi), has his world turned upside down when he is traded in for Javi 2.0. and goes from being a trophy boy to a trophy geezer. Banished from the Mount Olympus he shared with Jason and refusing to take any money from the man he still loves, Javi finds himself in the basement apartment of his parents' building. After a brief pity party for one, and with no marketable or discernible skills to fall back on, Javi sets out to rebuild his life. Reacquainting himself with family and friends and surviving a few soul-sucking jobs, Javi has a chance to finally grow up and become the man he was always meant to be. In a year that will forever change him, Javi discovers the price he paid for letting go of his dream. "This beautiful story unfolds with equal parts humor and heart. Sánchez writes with brassy Latino flair and sharp Noel Coward wit, and by the end you will be clutching this book and its characters close to your heart." - Charles Rice-González, author of Chulito "A roaring, exuberant novel by one of America's most dynamic writers. It is filled with humor, compassion, love, and a clear-eyed yet baroque take on what it means to be human during hard times and in the midst of precarious circumstances." - Caridad Svich, playwright, 2012 OBIE for Lifetime Achievement "Known and admired for the pointed grace and humor of his stage plays, Edwin Sánchez's first novel proves he knows just when to dish, when to ruminate, and when to rumble. An eminently readable and bravely queer story of lust, loss, and big hearts. Snap!" - Jorge B. Merced, Director, Pregones/Puerto Rican Traveling Theater
