Mordden lays bare the emotional landscape of the city within a city that is Gay Manhattan. Blending the comic, the sexy, and the at once idealistic and realistic, these stories represent Ethan Mordden at his very best.

Praise for Some Men Are Lookers

"Mordden explores a tricky moral universe in which emotional loyalty is exalted but sexual fidelity is not assumed...There is a sense of real pain amid the zingers; Mordden's characters run their mouths to avoid baring their souls." --The New York Times Book Review

"Sexy..charming...wonderfully apt and touching." --Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

"Mordden is one of our community's major contemporary writers...[his] stories have the speed, unexpectedness and lunacy essential to comedy, but they are also studded with his keen sensitivity and appetite for observation..an unusually rich and provocative re-creation of our lives." --HX Magazine

"A sophisticated stack of stories that reunited our favorite fictional cast and provide wry commentary on queer life from one of our most reliable authors." --The Advocate

"Some Men Are Lookers is a witty, satirical, intelligent and sophisticated book." --In Step

"Entertainingly portrays facets of ourselves, our lives, our loves and our conflicts; thus it conveys the essence of our drives, obsessions, desires and demons...alternately outrageous and touching." --Windy City Times
