Colonnade: A Life In Columns is a wild journey through gay Manhattan at the beginning of the 21st Century. Columnist Derek Hartley recounts his first two years in the city and his attempts to turn himself into a local celebrity with a little help from his friends. Along the way he experiences love and heartache, tragedy as a first-hand witness to the events of 9/11, personal and professional failures and his eventual rise as a radio talk show host in this unflinching look at a life lived in the big city.
Through it all, his weekly columns include tons of insight into the world of online dating, sex and romance. They are combined here for the first time with the unvarnished truth of the story behind the story, giving a fascinating glimpse into the mind of a writer. Colonnade: A Life In Columns also includes some of Hartley’s most popular columns including:
*Ten Essentials In Your Search For Love
*The Seven Deadly Gay Sins
*The Seven Heavenly Gay Virtues
Plus, Hartley explains how to survive a gay cruise, inconsiderate orgasm guy, the dynamics of a successful three-way and tips for winning the games men play. With nearly 100 original columns included along with sordid tales of sex and celebrities, Colonnade: A Life In Columns has a little something for everyone looking for adventure in the big apple.
