    The Gay Dr. Phil!

    The Way Out by Christopher Lee Nutter is a memoir of a former Chelsea boy's glory days in the 90s who kind of lived the life. In the book he calls himself a 'gay prince' he bartended at Splash, got naked for homoerotic nude books and wrote a weekly nightlife column for HX Magazine. But he couldn't figure out why none of it was making him happy--and then he got spiritual...but not in that nauseating New Agey way or that narrow minded/condemning religious way. A mixture of autobiography and self-help, The Way Out chronicles Nutter's years of making it big in New York City, the destructive patterns he developed and how he ultimately found out how to be happy. It distills wisdom from numerous world traditions (including Christianity, Buddhism, classical Philosophy and even pop culture) but speaks directly to gay men. And his life is a perfect template for the contemporary gay male experience in urban gay culture. He's our sorely needed Dr. Phil! And his message is expressed in the most beautiful and captivating prose.

    Great Book, fills a void in the Gay Market

    This is a book that has it all. So many times we are told what a liberating experience it is to come out -- but rarely are we told about the challenges and problems we could face after doing so. Christopher Lee Nutter takes us on a personal journey through his life, from his first same sex feelings, to coming out, to living a wild life, to facing his inner demons and dealing with homophobia. And in the end, he has become a well rounded gay man. Chapters include topics about possible negative reactions from friends to living the classic double life: in the closet in some places and out in others. This is a book that has something for everyone and is highly recommended.
