Upsize Instantly to this Witty, Sexy and Bestselling Australian Series of E-books!
Turning thirty years old can be traumatic for young gay men who yearn to be boyish forever - but what can you do? It’s unavoidable. Or is it? Clever, conniving Stephen Spear thinks he can outsmart this particular milestone. After all, he’s managed to convince his sweet, passive boyfriend Blake that he’s been faithful to him for the past three years. Smoothing over and explaining away inconvenient realities is an absolute cinch for Stephen!
But when temptation moves right next-door in the form of Rick, a Sydney hunk with a legendary endowment, Stephen disregards any sense of caution. He’s too entranced and far too self-absorbed to realise that the seduction might not actually unfold in accordance with his master plan.
Stephen Spear, the anti-hero of the bestselling Australian novel Vanity Fierce, rides again in this outrageous sequel. Set ten years later, The Indignities series can also be read as a self-contained storyline.
Praise for The Indignities Series from major Australian media:
‘Aitken’s wit is wicked in every sense of that word, while his ability to address confronting issues in a deceptively sunny manner is admirable.’ (Australian Book Review)
‘The gay world has turned since Vanity Fierce with the internet making its mark on social and sexual behaviour. Aitken has a keen sense of that, opening a window onto the lively confusions of gay culture.’ (The Age, Melbourne)
‘A must read.’ (Sydney Star Observer)
Pure guilty pleasure reading.
The first part of 3 of the long-awaited sequel to 'Vanity Fierce' certainly does not disappoint.
From start to finish you find yourself in a world masterfully crafted by the author to take you on another journey with the golden boy Stephen Spear.
He might be older, but he is certainly not all that much wiser as he finds himself navigating being 30, being gay in the world of the Internet and generally just trying to survive life.
If you have read the original, what are you waiting for. Buy this book. If you have not, it serves are an independent and extremely enjoyable tale of gay Sydney.
I could not recommend this author more. His voice has gravity and his characters are well crafted and compelling.
Buy this book. Thank me later.
Time to Read - if you haven’t already!
i went to the launch of this book several years ago and now the ebook version is available in a 3 book sequence. Perfect for re-reading. This is a very funny depiction of gay life in Sydney. It’s sexy, fun, well-written and the characters seem very real.
Couldn’t put it down
Great read … thank you!
