“This hurricane of delirious, lonely, lewd tales is a taxonomy and grand unified theory of the boyfriend, in every tense.” ―Parul Sehgal, The New York Occasions
“I loved this book―raunchy, irreverent, deliberate, sexy, angry, and tender, in its own way.” ―Roxane Homosexual
An irrerverent, delicate, and inimitable take a look at homosexual dysfunction by way of the eyes of a cult hero
Transgressive, foulmouthed, and brutally humorous, Brontez Purnell’s 100 Boyfriends is a revelatory spiral into the imperfect lives of queer males desperately preventing the urge to self-sabotage. As they tiptoe by way of minefields of romantic, substance-fueled misadventure―from soiled warehouses and gentrified bars in Oakland to desolate farm cities in Alabama―Purnell’s characters attempt for belonging in a world that dismisses them for being Black, broke, and queer. Regardless of it―or maybe due to it―they shine.
Armed with a deadpan wit, Purnell finds humor in even the darkest of nadirs with the peerless zeal, perception, and horniness of a homosexual punk messiah. Collectively, the slice-of-life tales that writhe inside 100 Boyfriends are an inimitable tour of an unexposed queer underbelly. Holding them collectively is the imaginative and prescient of an iconoclastic storyteller, as fearless as he’s human.
