Bold Strokes Books is pleased to announce the acquisition of Gary Garth McCann’s new work of gay erotic fiction, The Shape of the Earth, scheduled for release in 2019 from Bold Strokes Books.
After appearing in Best Gay Love Stories, Harrington Gay Men’s Fiction Quarterly, Q Review, and Off the Rocks, Lenny and his partner Dave return in a hotbed of manhood and jealousy.
Lenny is managing a failing bookstore and struggling to keep his promise of fidelity to Dave. He flirts relentlessly with grad student Ian until he discovers that Ian’s ambivalence masks something far more personal and devastating—it’s not Lenny Ian wants, but Dave. Caught up in a whirlwind of sex and lies, Lenny and Dave’s relationship spins out of control. Lenny clings to Dave’s unassuming strength in hopes of keeping himself grounded, but when another hot, handsome stranger becomes too tempting to resist, Lenny and Dave face the ultimate challenge.
