For a generation, Ethan Mordden's tales about a tightly knit circle of friends who live within the shifting confines of gay Manhattan have entertained tens of thousands of readers and devoted fans. Now Mordden returns to his best-loved characters - the ultimate hunk Carlo; the best friend Dennis Savage; J. (who was once Little Kiwi); Cosgrove the maturing elf-child; and narrator and ultimate observer Bud - in this eagerly awaited new volume in the cycle.
How's Your Romance? brings the series and the characters full circle – from the early days just post-Stonewall to the vicissitudes, delights, and challenges of the early twenty-first century. Blending the comic, the sexy, the tragic, and the at once realistic and idealistic, these stories are Mordden at his very best.

Praise for How's Your Romance?

“Trust, the emotional ties that bind, the fragile state of mind when a family member betrays a friendship and then wants back in, and the room given or not given to grow--these are some of the issues Mordden explores so successfully. Mordden is highly skilled at creating memorable characters, and ardent admirers of his work will see no reason to change their mind here.” —Library Journal on Some Men Are Lookers

“Sexy..charming...wonderfully apt and touching.” —Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) on Some Men Are Lookers

“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
