Praise for The Book

“Just as we’re on the verge of
losing gay quintessentials

like camp and irony, along comes David Roddis and A Slow Painful Death Would Be Too Good for You (and Other Observations),” a collection of personal and satirical essays told in the style that made gay people infamous for just being funnier.

“Roddis breathes life into a nearly lost art of arch wit, making it great to be gay again.”
