In William Jack Sibley's hilarious and high-spirited debut novel, a gay transplanted Texan discovers that you really can go home again. The real question is: who in his right mind would want to?

"Grit, Texas, is a helluva long way from Christopher Street..".

That's Manhattan hand model Clu Latimore's first thought upon his return to an all-too-familiar hometown with Chris, his laid-back lover, in tow. Mere moments after his arrival, Clu is up to his stylish cut in problems that include caring for his dying mother and her pack of prize-winning Chihuahuas, and of course, initiating the incredulous Chris into the reality of life in the land of blue bonnets, barbecue and Baptists.

Before Clu's journey is over, there will be a wedding, a birth, a funeral, and a no-holds-barred production of "Agamemnon -- the Musical". Convinced he's seen everything, Clu can't help wondering how long a couple of gay New Yorkers can possibly survive in a dry county crawling with Bible thumpers, fire ants, and temptation in the last place they ever expected to find it.
