Tommy's Tale: A Novel | [Alan Cumming]

Tommy's Tale: A Novel

Tommy is 29, lives and loves in London, and has a morbid fear of the "C" word (commitment), the "B" word (boyfriend), and the "F" word (forgetting to call his drug dealer before the weekend). But when he begins to feel the urge to become a father, and the pressure from his boyfriend to settle down, Tommy starts to wonder if his chosen lifestyle can ever make him happy. Faced with the choice between maintaining his hedonistic existence or chucking it all in favor of a far more sensitive, fulfilling, and slightly more staid lifestyle, Tommy finds himself in a true quandary.

Publisher's Summary

Tommy is 29, lives and loves in London, and has a morbid fear of the "C" word (commitment), the "B" word (boyfriend), and the "F" word (forgetting to call his drug dealer before the weekend). But when he begins to feel the urge to become a father, and the pressure from his boyfriend to make a real commitment to their relationship, Tommy starts to wonder if his chosen lifestyle can ever make him happy.

Faced with the choice between maintaining his hedonistic, drugged-out, and admittedly fabulous existence or chucking it all in favor of a far more sensitive, fulfilling, and - let's face it - slightly more staid lifestyle, Tommy finds himself in a true quandary. Through a series of adventures and misadventures that lead him from London nightspots to New York bedrooms and back, our boy Tommy manages to answer some of life's most pressing questions - even those he never thought to ask.

    "Alan Cumming narrates a novel by Allan Cumming"

    I am a big fan of Alan Cumming the author, and I loved this audiobook where he narrates his own novel.

    I liked the overall story but rated it down somewhat for the all the drug use. I know that people use drugs, but at times this story felt like that was was all that was going on.

    I highly enjoyed the fact that this was a story where gay characters can have a happy ending.

    Story
    "Couldn't finish it"

    I was updating my stats on Goodreads and ran across this in my library. I didn't remember it. I loaded it again and shut it down at an hour and eleven minutes. I just couldn't get into it. The narration was erratic but I think it was the writing. I don't understand what people like about it but I regret it was not for me.
