Drama Queen

The Gay Man's Guide to an Uncomplicated Life

Patrick Price

St. Martin's Griffin


Trade Paperback

For many gay men, drama is an essential spice of life. They'll spend the rent money on shoes, spread more gossip than E!, and let every minor incident be cause for a major scene. While often mistaken for harmless fun, in reality it scares off friends, irritates family and coworkers, and sends strangers running for cover.

But finally there is hope. Drama Queen is the essential guide for recognizing, acknowledging, and turning down the volume for every drama-loving man. From drama's roll call (the Gym Addict, the Big Ho, the gossipy Public Address System) to the laws of friendship ("Return calls - in this lifetime") to quizzes to help identify your own DQ (Drama Quotient) ("Is Aveda's twenty-four-hour hair emergency hotline on speed dial?"), Drama Queen explores the unique and often misunderstood dynamics of our lives. From compulsive spending ("What would Tom Ford wear to mow grass?") to building careers ("There will always be 'school nights'") to the puzzling ritual of courtship ("Fax me sometime"), Drama Queen is fast, funny, and delivers a healthier option than accepting the worst and expecting the world.

Praise for Drama Queen

“Delivers its message with winsome sincerity.” —Detour

“[Husband Hunting Made Easy] talks practically about dating, courtship, sex, money, feelings, and needs. If you're young and single, this is the book for you.” —XY Magazine

“Price's handbook for single gay men is more entertaining than educational, but we'll buy it-as much to laugh at our own foilables as to learn the secrets of finding a long-term relationship. And they do say laughter is the best medicine for a broken heart.” —Out Magazine
