Overview

A quirky, touching, and unique novel of a single gay man’s quest to find a meaningful relationship. Written over a period of twenty-five years, these fifteen linked short stories—many of which have appeared in literary magazines and anthologies—exploit the narrator’s wit and heightened self-examination by utilizing a second person point of view technique. Covering four decades of misadventures of looking for the right man, Currier’s unnamed narrator bumps through blind dates, break-ups, unexpected seductions, tragedies, and imperfect affairs. Currier was awarded a New York Foundation for the Arts fellowship for the stories included in What Comes Around.
