That's Mr. Faggot to You: Alec Baldwin Doesn't Love Me and Other Trials from My Queer Life Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Michael Thomas Ford wants to be Wynonna Judd. "Yes, it's true. I want to have big jouncing breasts and masses of thick red hair. I want full, pouty lips that curl up in an Elvis sneer. I want to caress my guitar while thousands of lesbians squeal in delight as they watch me totter across the stage in tight cowboy boots. I can't help it."

This secret wish (no longer a secret!) is revealed along with Ford's plans for a cross-country killing spree, the difference between Dogs and Dawgs (and their respective owners), and why lavender-scented hand soap is best left out of the bedroom in That's Mr. Faggot to You: Further Trials From My Queer Life, Mike Ford's second collection of hilarious essays. Ford's first collection, Alec Baldwin Doesn't Love Me, in addition to winning the 1998 Lambda Literary Award as the best humor book of 1998, drew rave reviews from coast to coast and became one of the top selling gay-themed books of 1998. "Michael Thomas Ford is a gay male Fran Lebowitz: disgruntled, disenchanted, disaffected, and distinctly, disarmingly, delightful," wrote J.S. Hall in Boston's Bay Windows. Hall's review became typical as word spread that a bright light among gay humorists had arrived. That's Mr. Faggot To You continues in a similar vein with caustic tirades, bemused observations, unnervingly familiar reminiscences, and startling confessions such as: "I'm a bad fag. Seriously. Someone should take away my membership card immediately, because apparently I just don't belong on the team at all. I can't even be the water boy or the rainbow-suited mascot."

Review:

"Cranky, bemused and extremely funny." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"[W]hile drenched in gay, what gives the book an extra dollop of interest is when Ford goes off on topics that are not gay-centered — Christmas, the joys and tribulations of owning a dog, special toys designed for Christian children. Ford definitely has the wordsmith's talent." Gay & Lesbian Times

Review:

"Ford's follow-up to his hugely successful Alec Baldwin Doesn't Love Me is darker, angrier, and just as bitingly funny. Fabulously testy and trenchant, he simultaneously exposes our foibles for ridicule and embraces them." Outlines

Review:

"It's hysterical, and it just might make you think while being entertained." Hero Magazine

Synopsis:

In this hilarious follow-up to the bestselling "Alec Baldwin Doesn't Love Me, " Ford offers more wicked observations on queer life in America.

About the Author

Ford has a syndicated humor column which appears monthly in newspapers across the nation. He has written for numerous magazines and anthologies.
