Do you believe in love at first sight? Paul Auster doesn't. Paul doesn't believe in much at all. He's thirty, slightly overweight, and his best features are his acerbic wit and the color commentary he provides as life passes him by. His closest friends are a two-legged dog named Wheels and a quasibipolar drag queen named Helena Handbasket. He works a dead-end job in a soul-sucking cubicle, and if his grandmother's homophobic parrot insults him one more time, Paul is going to wring its stupid neck. Enter Vince Taylor. Vince is everything Paul isn't: sexy, confident, and dumber than the proverbial box of rocks. And for some reason, Vince pursues Paul relentlessly. Vince must be messing with him, because there is no way Vince could want someone like Paul. But when Paul hits Vince with his car-in a completely unintentional if-he-died-it'd-only-be-manslaughter kind of way-he's forced to see Vince in a whole new light. The only thing stopping Paul from believing in Vince is himself-and that is one obstacle Paul can't quite seem to overcome. But when tragedy strikes Vince's family, Paul must put aside any notions he has about himself and stand next to the man who thinks he's perfect the way he is.

I'm going to keep this short and sweet or now because times a wasting and I have to dedicate my attention to other thing...you see big changes are coming in my life those of you who have chatted with me over the past few years will know I've been living in a different province than the one I was bor...
Omg I was laughing so hard I couldn't breathe at times. The salad getting lodged in Paul's throat was hilarious. But seriously don't read it outdoors in a public place unless you want people to look at you like you are crazy. I was listening to the audio book so yeah...a tough time for me to stay q...
This book is pretty much perfect, but the audio is exquisite!
I listened to this on Audible, and I couldn't do it outside of my flat for fear of coming across as insane. So fucking funny. I read the Homo Jock before this one, so I got the story a little backwards, but I still loved it. So adorable, so funny. Just what my autumn blues called for.
It was impossible for me not to laugh during some of this. If you're in the mood to chuckle, check it out. I wasn't super crazy about Paul, but I liked him well enough, and I enjoyed the story.
