175 pages including b/w illustrations. Novel about love, masculine identity and pro-wrestling. Adam is a professional wrestler struggling to build his career in this macho industry while burdened by a gay persona. David is a bookstore owner, intellectual and gay rights activist. It's definitely a case of 'opposites attract' when Adam walks into David's bookstore one day. Before they know it they're not only struggling with a fledgling affair, but David is endangering the whole pro wrestling industry by outing it as a staged entertainment. The web of this entertaining tale of professional wrestling, new love and other confusions is freshly spun by Patrick (bookstore employee, wrestling fan, lad about town). This tag team tussle with genre and gender chokeslams and chinlocks the reader into submission.
