“Quinn is a masterful writer of dialogue, lacing his characters’ speech with dry humor and honest, if often unflinching words.” --The Bloomsbury Review Jay Quinn’s Lambda-nominated novels transcend the traditional gay novel, exploring universal issues of marriage, aging parents, addiction, and attraction, all while presenting unique characters and page-turning drama. In THE BOOMERANG KID, Maura Ostryder is coming into her own, professionally and privately, as she begins her fifty-first year. Maura has always been the master of her own life and has reared her son, Kai (named for the Hawaiian word “sea”) to be the same. But now a grown Kai has come home, having fled emotional attachments to both a young man and a young woman, bringing with him his addiction to painkillers. Suddenly Maura’s maternal streak is reawakened, as she battles to bring Kai from the brink of self-destruction. Vivid and lyrical, this is an emotional tale of the unbreakable bond between mother and son. "Jay Quinn is a deft storyteller. The story is warm, inviting, and thoroughly satisfying." -- New York Blade Don’t miss any of Jay Quinn’s novels from E-Reads: Metes and Bounds, Back Where He Started, The Good Neighbor, The Beloved Son, and The Boomerang Kid
