Long out of print, Rodi's 1996 comedy of manners returns to revel anew in the high-stakes (and even higher-hilarity) world of sexual companionship to the rich and famous.

Dennis Racine is the beautiful, pampered boy-toy of the powerful Chicago theater impresario, Farleigh Nock-and has been since he was fifteen. Now, however, he's thirty-one, and suddenly aware that his situation may have a shelf life. When Farleigh begins to withdraw his favor-to the point of insisting Dennis help pay for his keep by (gasp) getting a job-Dennis suspects he has a newer, younger rival somewhere. And when he discovers who-and more importantly, why-Dennis finally learns he does have ambition, as he undertakes an all-out campaign to preserve his privileged lifestyle. Ranging from on-the-job slapstick to transatlantic intrigue, Kept Boy is Robert Rodi at his uproarious, subversive, unforgettable best.
