In his evocative and mesmerizing debut novel, Lee Houck depicts a contemporary Manhattan thrumming with sex and violence as seen through the eyes of Simon--a twenty-something part-time hustler with a cadre of loyal, sometimes floundering friends. As Simon grows increasingly involved with a gorgeous, guileless client named Aiden, he tries to navigate a path to fulfillment in a city where love and honesty are as dangerous as they are rare. Witty, spare, and rapier-sharp, this is an exceptional story of the friendships that sustain us, the families we create, and the pain and joy that are always within reach, waiting for us to yield. . .
"Brisk and buoyant, this engaging debut captures big-city hustle with small-town heart."
"Witty and wrenching, Yield is required reading for anyone who wants to know what it means to be young, gay and without a roadmap in today's world."
--Vestal McIntyre, author of Lake Overturn
"Yield is a bold and shocking story concerned with humanism--it's a dazzling and sometimes dangerous foray into post-queer realism."
--Charlie Vázquez, author and blogger
