These sensual stories by prize-winning author John Sam Jones reveal lucid prose and complex lives. Moving through city steam rooms, rugged North Wales mountains, and estuaries facing other places. Risky sex, new romance, and easy understanding, a mortgage on a semi or keeping a lid on it all for the sake family, status, and belief...


"Are these the best gay stories since Tennessee Williams' One Arm?" —Booklist

Author Biography

John Sam Jones' life began on the coast of Wales, where he then became an undergraduate in Aberystwyth. After a scholarship at Berkley, San Francisco, he moved back to the UK to work in chaplaincy, education, and sexual health during the AIDS epidemic. In 2001 he became the first co-chair of the LGB Forum Cymru (now known as Stonewall Cymru), set up to advise the Welsh Government on LGB issues. He also ran a guesthouse with his husband in Barmouth for many years, where he eventually became mayor. After the European Union Referendum, John moved to Germany. He now lives in semi-retirement with his husband and two Welsh Collies in a small German village next to the Dutch border.
