Description

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, and the pressure from his boyfriend to make a real commitment to their relationship, Tommy 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-slightly more staid 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-even those he never thought to ask.

    Wickedly funny, i read it in three days and that's while working full time, with school and traveling over the long weekend. It was so good I couldn't stop laughing out loud (even on the NYC subway).

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading Tommy’s Tale; I especially liked the very lively, chatty and informal writing style. The story as told by Tommy centres mainly on a period of a few weeks in which the narrator finally comes to the realisation that, approaching the age of thirty, he needs to change his boyish ways and accept responsibility, and that includes deciding if he should settle with his forty year old boyfriend Charlie (and his boyfriend’s lovable son Finn). He has help in the form of his two faithful flat mates, Bobby and Sadie. This is a very funny and warm story.

    Smart, hilarious, and not for the faint hearted or moralistic reader!
