The riotous follow-up to Rodi's cult hit Fag Hag, Closet Case turned the genre of the gay coming-out story inside-out and upside-down. Long out of print, this 1993 comic tour de force now returns to delight and enlighten a whole new generation.

Lionel Frank is a workaholic account executive at an upscale advertising agency, in charge of the über-masculine All-Pro Power Tools account. But Lionel has a secret life-one spent huddled in his car, dialing phone-sex numbers like 1-800-BOY-TOYZ, or lurking in the shadows of gay strip clubs with his flamboyant hairdresser friend, Toné. When continued professional success forces a choice between his two lives, Lionel decides to bury his sexuality forever...a task easier said than done. His increasingly calamitous cover-ups finally reach critical mass at a client's retreat on a Wisconsin lake, where Lionel-who's always said he'd rather die than come out-finds himself facing a situation where the choice is exactly that.

"A joyride of a book...infectious...hard to put down." - Boston Phoenix
