Simon Doonan knows that when it comes to style, the gays are the chosen people. A second anthropological truth comes to him midway through a turkey burger with no bun, at an otherwise hetero barbecue: Do the straight people have any idea how many calories are in the guacamole? In this hilarious discourse on and guide to the well-lived life, Doonan goes far beyond the secrets to eating like the French--he proves that gay men really are French women, from their delight in fashion, to their brilliant choices in accessories and decor, to their awe-inspiring ability to limit calorie intake. A Gucci-wearing Margaret Mead at heart, Doonan offers his own inimitable life experiences and uncanny insights into makes gay people driven to live every day feeling their best, and proves that they have just as much--and possibly better--wisdom, advice, and inspiration beyond the same old diet and exercise tips.

So put down that bag of Pirate's Booty and pick up this fierce and fabulous book. From slimming jaunts through Capri in the evening to an intrepid "Bear" hunt (if you have to ask, you have to read this book and find out for yourself), "Gay Men Don't Get Fat" is the ultimate approach to a glamorous lifestyle--plus, you are guaranteed to laugh away the pounds!

Praise for GAY MEN DON T GET FAT by Simon Doonan: "Simon Doonan is one funny gay nugget." Chelsea Handler "If I were really short, gay, and way funnier than I am now, I would try to pass myself off as Simon Doonan." Malcolm Gladwell "Simon Doonan is the Auntie Mame every up-and-coming future legend should have, the gay best friend who always gives it to you straight." RuPaul "Simon writes like a lethal combo of Robert Benchley and Dorothy Parker. I laughed so hard while reading this book I nearly split my Spanx." Joan Rivers "The most un-tragic book about being gay ever written." JohnWaters "Dining with Mr. Doonan is like lunching with the 'Jersey Shore'-era grandnephew of Oscar Wilde....there are times when his thoughts on the sexual orientation of food can be unexpectedly eye-opening." Jeff Gordinier, "The New York Times""[D]eliciously mischievous wit...Doonan is the David Sedaris of the style universe." Christopher Muther, "The Boston Globe" Blisteringly funny. "Kirkus Reviews" ["Gay Men Don t Get Fat]" will certainly have you laughing until your sides hurt. Alyssa Vingan, "Marie Claire" In addition to educating those not-in-the-know, Doonan regales readers with tongue-in-cheek commentary and witchy barbs that bespeak a more militant Joan Rivers. "Publishers Weekly" The sense of humor is matched by a very real motivation to empower women. Kerry Pieri, "Harper's Bazaar"
