"New York is famous for its literary movements...[and] the Facebook generation has produced a number of unlikely breakout stars, including Justin Luke Zirilli." --Advocate.com
"[Zirilli] manages to give his characters depth, fluidity, composition, posture, and sets them all in a background that is believable and vivid. Above all, I didn't want to put the book down." --Garrett Frechette, Examiner.com
"There is a lot of observational humor...in this coming of age story. Good stuff." --Guerillabookworm.com
"Your beach bag isn't complete without this debut novel...comically divided into four 'rounds' that might also serve to remind you it's time to apply more sunscreen." --Donalevan Maines, Out Smart
About the Author
Justin Luke Zirilli is the co-director and head promoter of BoiParty.com, a New York-based gay nightlife events company. He and his business partner, Alan Picus, throw weekly dance parties around New York City, and larger events across the United States. In addition to event planning, Justin feeds his addiction to social media as the creator of Gorgeous, Gay and Twenty-Something, a private international Facebook group, as the New York correspondent of the national gay talk show, The Swish Edition, and by moonlighting as a social media and new business consultant. When he isn’t glued to his computer screen, or traversing NYC’s gay party scene, he spends his time in Hell’s Kitchen, playing PlayStation and watching The West Wing
with his boyfriend, Mash-up Mastermind DJ JoeRedHead. Gulliver Takes Manhattan
is his first book.
