Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Impossible to resist, this hilariously sassy and sweet collection of haiku turns the perilous sport of gay dating into pure poetry.

For hundreds of years, the Japanese haiku has been equated with peaceful contemplation and spiritual enlightenment. A delicate balance of rhythm and line, the haiku has provided countless readers with an appreciation of the changing of the seasons and the miracles of nature. Now, in Gay Haiku, readers can finally appreciate more important things—like the changing of boyfriends and the miracles of shopping.

Irresistible and irreverent, this collection of one hundred and ten witty and wicked short poems captures the many dating disasters of first-time author Joel Derfner. In a wonderfully fresh and original voice, Derfner shamelessly mines his personal life to send up such broad-ranging topics as gay pop culture, politics, family, sex, and, of course, home decorating.

Gay, straight, or undecided, readers will delight in Derfners dry sense of humor and unmistakable charm as he tackles the big questions of life.

Synopsis:

Irresistible and irreverent, this collection of 110 witty and wicked short poems captures the many dating disasters of first-time author Joel Derfner as he tackles the big questions of contemporary gay life.

About the Author

JOEL DERFNER graduated from Harvard with a degree in linguistics. His work for the musical theater has been produced in London, New York, and various cities in between. In an attempt to become the gayest person ever, he took up knitting and got a job as a step aerobics instructor.

The kid nails it! ...

Thanks for saying nearly everything about nearly everything in a succinct and laugh-out-loud manner ... I'm certain the passengers located nearest to me on my recent flight to Toronto (yup, new boyfriend!) thought I needed to adjust my prescriptions ... I'm gifting this book to everyone I can think of: gay, straight, married or single-for-obvious-reasons ...

So what if your pecs are puny ... I'm sure he loves you (there's always a "he", eh?) for your mind ... yeah, right ... whatever! ... Here's hoping you're hung like a Clydesdale and happier than humanly possible ... live long, and prosper...

Peace out.
Joey
