Jonathan Parks-Ramage has written a gut-churning, heart-wrenching, blockbuster of a first novel. Deeply queer and deeply human, it is a book that describes what it means to be broken apart in trauma and grief and what it takes to be painfully, carefully stitched back together again. Parks-Ramage is an extraordinary new talent and Yes, Daddy is truly something special." --Kristen Arnett, author of Mostly Dead Things "A dark and aching account, where the treachery of powerful men preys on the bodies and minds of the young. The excesses of a Hamptons summer cannot cover up the truth of how greed and need birth abuses so visceral as to touch the surreal. Parks-Ramage takes a reader into the fiery, unblinking sights of a tortured beast." --Samantha Hunt, author of The Dark Dark "Jonathan Parks-Ramage has written an incredibly tender, yet fearless, novel that reminds us of what it means to err, to be forgiven, to forgive, and to live. Yes, Daddy is a gem of a debut." --De'Shawn Charles Winslow, author of In West Mills "Yes, Daddy is a deeply humane, complex account of public and private trauma in the age of fake news. Ultimately, this is a story of redemption in an era when grace seems impossible. Deeply familiar yet always surprising and--most important--well-written, this is a superb debut." --Garrard Conley, author of Boy Erased "Dark, twisted, and tightly plotted, Yes, Daddy is a to-the-minute thriller about sex, violence, and power. Sure to disturb and enthrall, Jonathan Parks-Rampage's shocker of a debut was made for the screen and for our cultural moment." --Alex Marzano-Lesnevich, author of The Fact of a Body "Jonathan Parks-Ramage's dazzling novel Yes, Daddy deftly uses desire and violence to explode the allure of New York power gays. Yet Parks-Ramage has more on his mind than a rarefied milieu; as Yes, Daddy reaches its virtuosic conclusion, it's his bruised narrator's journey to redemption that elevates the book to a kind of ecstasy. A piercing new addition to the contemporary queer canon." --Sam Lansky, author of Broken People "Jonathan Parks-Ramage's debut novel is a queer gothic thriller you can't afford to miss. It centers on Jonah, who spends his days waiting tables and dreaming of making it in the theater world. His love affair with Richard, an award-winning play
