Memoirs of a Gigolo

 

The Bi Book Club meets monthly to discuss bi-themed books and the issues they raise.

Day/Time: 4th Thursdays, 6:30-8pm. Dinner after nearby (usually Village Den.)

The Bi Book Club theme for July & August is “The Summer of Sex.” Our book for August is Memoirs of a Gigolo, Omnibus Vol. 1-4, by Livia Ellis,  (order your copy from BGSQD.) This is a sexy, funny, bisexual erotic novel.

In this collected omnibus edition of the first four e-books in the series, you’ll learn why Oliver turns to a life as a male escort when he is a titled English Lord (and a tabloid favorite). Follow him as he travels the globe (Tokyo, Bangkok, etc.) bedding a Latin pop star, two princesses, and a beautiful Russian fellow escort as charming and duplicitous as himself. This book has a very humorous tone. You won’t want to stop reading.

Pick out some phrases, paragraphs or scenes that you’d like to discuss, or just join in on our read-a-long. Last month we had a blast reading bisexual scenes from our erotic romance book out loud with everyone taking different roles. Give us your critique of the book. What worked, what didnt, how was bisexuality represented? If you havent had time to finish the readings, come anyway because we read passages from the book aloud for discussion. As usual, we’ll also be using the text as a jumping off point to further discussion of bisexual issues and personal experiences.

Next Book: Call It Wonder the new memoir by Kate Evans.

Getting Books: We urge you to purchase your print copy at the Bureau and support the only LGBT bookstore in New York City. Especially since they are hosting us in their space! If you prefer e-books, just get them your usual way.
