"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. This character's memories are from a fictitious life that's outrageous, hilarious, and embarrassingly real. From a typical suburban childhood to his perpetual search for true love, Albo evokes a poignant, nostalgic past and a vibrant, energetic present. By turns vulnerable and jaded, flamboyant and obsessive, Hornito is full of subversive humor and outrageous irony.
