At the heart of Last Summer are three men--Joshua Felling, Toby Evans, and Reilly Brennan--who each represent the different perspectives and reasons for being in Provincetown, but whose lives intermingle regardless of their different personalities, ages, and backgrounds. At thirty-three, Josh has become tired of his life, leaving his old self behind with the hope of making a fresh start. Toby, who is only nineteen, finds himself moving to Provincetown to seek solace after his familyhas kicked him out of his Midwestern home. Reilly, who has been a lifelong resident, is still unclear about his own sexuality and has long wondered what his fantasies about other men might mean. Everything is about to change when Reilly meets Joshua and the two strike up an odd friendship--that's when Reilly knows, for sure, that he isn't just fantasizing anymore. A stunning debut novel, Michael Thomas Ford's Last Summer is a wondrous story about love and possibility that readers won't soon forget.
