Graeme Aitken's last novel was fabulous...in fifty ways. This novel is fabulous in fifty different ways...bitchy, funny, camp, tender, vain, glamorous, capricious, seductive...like Sydney itself where this tale of the city is set.
The ultimate comic novel of gay Sydney - Armistead Maupin meets Melrose Place at the Mardi Gras!
Stephen Spear is everyone's golden boy (including his own).
Blond, blue-eyed, blessed with every talent and advantage, he has the world falling at his feet. And he's ready to trample all over it.
When Stephen falls for Ant, the only gay man he knows who still has chest hair, he is astounded to find his desire unrequited. Or is it? Ant is so inscrutable, it's impossible to be entirely sure.
But Stephen is determined to get his man. And if the wiggle of his cute butt isn't enough, then scheming, lying and manipulating is second nature to him. He's too young to realise that love can be tricky enough without adding any extra complications.
Vanity Fierce is a love story that's big on outrageous schemes, dark secrets and firm muscles.
Recommend this to All!
This is in the top five of my all-time favourite books!
It's comical and touching story of a young guy who moves to Sydney and falls for his neighbour who doesn’t seem to know they are anything more than friends. Instead of focusing on his Uni work, Stephen spends his time on arranging scenarios to get Ant’s attention or cook him the perfect meal but something always seems to get in the way; at one point this ‘something’ becomes a ‘someone’.
I enjoyed this so much I have two copies, one to read – and has the wear and tear to prove it – and one to keep just in case the other goes missing. It has also been presented as a birthday gift to friends who are avid readers and all have enjoyed it.
