Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

About the Author

Mike Albo is a writer and a performer. He grew up mostly in the suburbs of Virginia. He has performed three solo shows, Mike Albo; Spray; and Please Everything Burst, each cowritten with Virginia Heffernan. Selections from these shows appear in Extreme Exposure: Solo Performance Texts from the 20th Century, edited by Jo Bonney. He also wrote a play called Sexotheque. He is a founder of the reknowned Dazzle Dancers. He lives in Brooklyn right now and wants to make sure you know he hasn't settled into that pleasant, calm, brownstoney life that these book bios always seem to imply.
