About the Author

Robert Plunket was born in Greenville, Texas in 1945, and raised in Havana and Mexico City. After an unsuccessful stint as an actor in New York, he moved to Sarasota, Florida, where he became Mr. Chatterbox, the gossip columnist for Sarasota Magazine. He is now retired and has "found peace and contentment at a lovely trailer park in Florida." New Directions also publishes his novel My Search for Warren Harding, described by Danzy Senna in the foreword as "one of the best, and most invigorating books I'd read in years, and certainly the funniest."

Reviews
A comedy of manners with a time bomb ticking behind the curtain.--Jay McInerney "The New York Times"
Part of what feels so notable about Plunket's writing is that it expresses a gay or queer sensibility through a lot of different, complementary emotional registers.--Brandon Sanchez "New York Magazine"
One of America's funniest, gayest writers.--Casey Cep "The New Yorker"
It's rare for a long-forgotten writer into his eighth decade to get rediscovered. What's even more unusual about Plunket, and his unlikely return, is how stealthily influential his fiction has been over the decades.--Alexandra Alter "The New York Times"
