Perry Brass is the author of 19 books, including the bestselling, Ippy Gold Medal Award-winning guide The Manly Art of Seduction: How to Meet, Talk to, and Become Intimate With Anyone, which takes on the assumption that "men are not supposed to be seductive." His newest novel is King of Angels, a gay, Southern, Jewish coming-of-age novel set in Savannah, Ga., in 1963, the year John F. Kennedy was assassinated. It was a finalist for a 2013 Ferro-Grumley Award for LGBT fiction.
