First off, it’s crazy that we’re at episode 80. It doesn’t feel like it’s been that long since we started Jeff & Will’s Big Gay Fiction Podcast. Even crazier is that we’ll hit #100 on September 11, just 20 weeks from now.

But, back to this week’s show. Sarina Bowen is back! I love Sarina. Her books are so incredible. As you may know (because I talk about it too much), Understatement of the Year is one of my all time favorite books. The Him/Us books she wrote with Elle Kennedy are superb. And her recently re-released Goodbye Paradise was heartrending and wonderful. The focus of this week’s interview is on Goodbye Paradise and Good Boy, which is a terrific m/f sequel to Him/Us.

In addition, I review Honestly Ben by Bill Konigsberg (soooo amazing!) and Will talks about the Joeboys coffee table book (as you can see above). Plus there’s more. Make sure to check out this week’s episode!
