The House of Wolves: A Novel

Length: 270 pages4 hours


Enveloped by the native spirits of the Pacific Northwest, Roy Wallace and David Moreau’s newfound relationship begins. David soon introduces Roy to the House of Wolves, a small intentional community of gay and bisexual men where honor, companionship, spirituality, erotic desire, and brotherhood guide their way. Having lost their visionary founder, the household has been faltering and losing faith in the dreams that brought them together. Energized by David’s new relationship with Roy, the group takes the final steps to grieve its past loss while striving for an extraordinary new future.

Each man living in the house embodies a totem from the spirit world, and has committed himself to finding a unique path in life. As the mystical rituals and traditions of Roy’s new chosen family are revealed, each character is forced to confront fears and break through personal limitations in order to embrace the extraordinary loving spirit that ultimately unites them in body, mind, and spirit in the House of Wolves.

“The House of Wolves is a vivid amalgam of elements: body hair and beards, pipe smoke and man-musk, the landscape of the Pacific Northwest, the richness of Native American culture. Bob McDiarmid’s evocative novel beautifully intertwines the erotic, the romantic, and the spiritual, and it depicts homomasculinity at its best: lusty, strong, compassionate, and kind.”
—Jeff Mann, Lambda Literary Award-winner, A History of Barbed Wire.
