Publisher's Summary

From the critically acclaimed writer, Michael Thomas Ford, comes a highly anticipated first novel that follows the intertwining lives of three men, set against the backdrop of summer-time in the breezy coastal community of Provincetown.

At 33, Josh has become tired of his life, leaving his old self behind with the hope of making a fresh start. Toby, who is only 19, finds himself moving to Provincetown to seek solace after his family has kicked him out of his Midwestern home. Reilly, who has been a lifelong resident, is still unclear about his own sexuality and has long wondered what his fantasies about other men might mean.

Everything is about to change when Reilly meets Joshua and the two strike up an odd friendship--that's when Reilly knows, for sure, that he isn't just fantasizing anymore.

    "Not breaking any new ground but very entertaining"
    If you could sum up Last Summer in three words, what would they be?

    Heart-warming
    Funny
    Relatable


    What other book might you compare Last Summer to and why?

    Last Summer reminds me of Armistead Maupin's Tales of the City as it follows different characters in a span of one summer.


    Which character – as performed by Blake Somerset – was your favorite?

    I loved all his characterizations but Emerline was particularly touching to me.


    Who was the most memorable character of Last Summer and why?

    Josh was the most memorable for me as I could really relate to his experiences. I had a lot in common with him.


    Any additional comments?

    As my headline says not breaking any new ground but the story was written in a very personal style that really drew me in to the characters and their experiences. I really didn't want it to end and I so wish that MTF would write a sequel to this very touching story.

    "Another great book"

    I'm fast becoming a Michael Thomas Ford fan. An idilic view of life in Provincetown, a best case scenario for a gay movie super star and an instant family for an middle aged lesbian.
