Set at the turn of the new millennium, “The Easy Way Out” is the story of Josh, a young, street-smart Florida drifter who is snatched from his dead-end existence as a male hustler in a cheap Key Largo motel by Bishop, a Wall Street power broker, who sets him up as his trophy boy in Manhattan society. There Josh, after leading a promiscuous lifestyle among New York City’s gay sub-culture, meets Hylan, a young, bi-racial down-on-his luck, wheelchair-bound musician who awakens in Josh what love can be between two men. But their chance at happiness and the lives of those around them are forever changed by 9/11.
Largely autobiographical, the book is dedicated to “the people I’ve known in my life who now live as characters in this book, a book closer to fact than fiction.”
