In this short story collection, American men—gay, straight, bi, trans—revel in wild romps, lose themselves in romances, discover unexpected friendships, and wrestle with shocking encounters while traveling/living abroad. These stories blend humor, suspense, and eroticism with compassion for the universal struggle not simply to endure but to overcome.
