Editorial Reviews from

Scott Heim, author of Mysterious Skin and We Disappear
"Boston Boys Club is racy, funny, and smart. With his unforgettable trio of narrators, Johnny Diaz ushers the reader through the sex-filled, weirdly skewed world of contemporary gay Boston. You're going to love this book."

J.G. Hayes, author of A Map of The Harbor Islands
"Johnny Diaz brings to palpable life the ins, out, ups and downs of gay city life and its most dangerous pastime: dating. In chronicling the love lives - or lack thereof - of three good friends who meet weekly at the local watering hole, Johnny Diaz gives us situations, hopes, fears, and especially characters that all readers will identify with, and may even recognize as themselves. At turns comic, touching, and tragic, Boston Boys Club is sure to serve as a testament of American gay life in the new millennium, and the timeless search for Mister Right - or Mister Right Now. An addictive read.''
