Eliott is a TV writer with a perfect-penised boyfriend. He’s living the dream.

But behind the glossy veneer he’s been papering over the cracks, and they’re starting to show. He’s creatively stifled, he’s drinking a little too often and his cerebral palsy makes him feel like gay Shrek.

When River walks in, Eliott’s life is turned upside down in the best way. River is funny, charming and makes him feel seen. But maybe that’s part of the deal when you hire a sex worker.

Eliott is lost and he needs someone, anyone, to point him in the right direction. After all, it’s a long limp toward redemption.

In conversation for this virtual event, Ryan will explore the inspiration behind his hilarious and incisive debut novel and consider its themes of the intersection of queerness and disability, and discovering who you really are. Honest, hilarious and raw, this event promises to share a fresh take on modern life.

“Sharp, bawdy, yet still deeply touching. It’s shockingly elegant and elegantly shocking.” Lena Dunham
