Synopsis

Pre-order the new sharp, hilarious Justin Myers novel, LEADING MAN, now!

'Funny, beautifully observed and moving' Adam Kay

*****

Two brothers. Two different journeys. The same hope of a magnificent future.

At twenty-nine, Jake D'Arcy has finally got his life just right. Job with prospects: check. Steady girlfriend: check. Keeping his exhausting, boisterous family at bay: check. So why isn't he happier?

When his confident, much-adored younger brother Trick comes out as gay to a rapturous response, Jake realises he has questions about his own repressed bisexuality, and that he can't wait any longer to find his answers.

As Trick begins to struggle with navigating the murky waters of adult relationships, Jake must confront himself and those closest to him. He's beginning to believe his own life could be magnificent, if he can be brave enough to make it happen . . .
