About the Book
This story of young love begins with a bang. The narrator is Edward, Cuban-born CCNY honors student and page at the New York Public Library (just a page, not a whole book or anything) - ”handsome, charming, reeking of sex” - who begins narrating his propulsive and compelling story at his first sight of Andrew.

Ned, who's seen it all before, adds his voice after Andrew, a young scholar new to town - but with publishing connections - falls in love with Edward at first sight, and seeks the older man's guidance.

The self-styled master of gay Manhattan, Ned is the founder of "Gays Reaching Out" (GRO) and author of a bestselling manual, "How to Score Tonight." He offers hands-on instruction, as required, but is more interested in using Andrew to kick-start his own languishing literary career than in helping his love life.

Andrew makes stumbling progress through gay New York in pursuit of Edward. But Edward, in flight from a pregnant hookup, leaps from his mom's Harlem apartment to flop on his oldest friend's floor, his best friend's couch, Andrew's bed, the West Side Y, a patch of ivy in Central Park and a jail cell or two. Ned's machinations come to naught as "Queer's Progress" races relentlessly toward a classic, but surprising, inevitability. It's a tale by turns savage and urbane, lyrical and full of wit-burnished emotion.
