Product Description: Guess Who's Coming Out? Noah Abraham is back in New York tending to his ailing father while dealing with his writer's block on a book about gay congressional staffers. What he needs is a break, and he gets it when he meets Bart Gustafson, the personal assistant to former film and television star Quinn Scott. The macho stud has been living in exile for years since running away with one of his ex-wife's backup dancers-a male backup dancer. And just like that, Noah's writing block is cured. The Full, Shocking Story! Getting a sizzling, tell-all book out of Quinn won't be boring-or easy. The 72-year-old is profane, hard-drinking, and hard of hearing, but he's got plenty of dish on Hollywood, especially its very deep closets. The only topics that are off-limits for Quinn are his son, heartthrob actor Quinn, Jr., and his marriage to 1960s wholesome screen queen, Kitty Randolph. The girl once known for her "sweetness" has spent the last forty years morphing from girl-next-door to scary Hollywood mogul. She owns that town, and she's not about to let her ex-husband spill secrets. Exclusive! Unbelievable! And Very, Very Hot. Now, in an outrageous La-La-Land of come-ons, coming outs, and tell-alls, where everyone's got something to hide and plenty to divulge, Noah and Bart are riding fame's heady, strange wave and trying not to get drowned in the process. It's going to take every bit of cunning they've got, because when the stars come out, someone's going to take a fall

Trust fund boys : a novel by Rob Byrnes( Book )

5 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Meet Brett Revere. A failed actor and recently fired temp, he's created a life centered on survival and hopefulness. Plucky doesn't pay the rent, but if you use your charm and good looks to convince other people that you're already wealthy--this of course connects you to other wealthy people who are happy to buy you things as long as you're one of them. When Brett meets Jamie Brock at a watering hole for rich, older gay men and the younger men who love their wallets, sparks fly--even after they discover they're both playing the same game. Soon the two are mixing it up with a "Velvet Mafia" of gay power-brokers, suspicious socialites, and social climbers, while running away from compromising Internet photos, creepy roommates, the threat of exposure, and their own nagging consciences.--From publisher description

"When Grant Lambert and Chase LaMarca--partners in life and crime--learn that $7 million in not-so-petty cash is hidden in the safe of a rightwing mega-church, they assemble a team of gay and lesbian criminals to infiltrate the church and steal the money. But this Gang That Can't Do Anything Straight quickly finds its plans complicated by corrupt congressmen (and their gay aides): an 'ex-gay' conference; an FBI investigation; and--most jarring for these born-and-bred New Yorkers--life in the northern Virginia suburbs. And then there is Dr. Oscar Hurley--founder of the church--and his right-hand man, the Rev. Dennis Merribaugh, who prove themselves every bit as adept as the professionals when it comes to larceny..."--Page 4 of cover
