It's a Boy Book!

I want to begin the day by sending a big congratulations out to my pal Frank Anthony Polito whose debut novel -- "Band Fags!" -- officially goes on sale today! (Order your copy here.) The suburban Detroit, homo-coming-of-age story set in the '80s is getting rave reviews, and I can't hardly wait to attend the big launch party at 1984 next month (see details below).

You can watch the adorable trailer here:

And check out some upcoming events below. (See the full schedule here.)

Tuesday, June 3rd / 7:30 p.m.
Barnes & Noble Greenwich Village
396 Avenue of the Americas @ 8th Street

Frank, you sure know how to make an Oakland County boy proud, even if you lived way closer to 8 Mile than I ever did ...
