Hold Me Closer: The Tiny Cooper Story
Larger-than-life character Tiny Cooper, from John Green and David Levithan’s bestselling novel Will Grayson, Will Grayson, finally tells his own story the only way he knows how—as a stupendous musical.
In this novel-in-musical-form, readers will experience all of Hold Me Closer, the autobiographical musical written by and staring Tiny Cooper. Filled with humour, pain, and 'big, lively, belty' musical numbers, readers will finally learn Tiny’s full story, from his birth and childhood to his quest for love and his infamous eighteen ex-boyfriends.
'This is everything I devour in a novel: heart, humour and dialogue I'd kill to have written.' Melina Marchetta on Will Grayson, Will Grayson 'Big, crazy and lovable.' Weekend Australian on Will Grayson, Will Grayson 'Teens and older young adults will find themselves here and likely learn a little about that many-splendoured emotion.' Kirkus Reviews on How They Met and Other Stories '[The Realm of Possibility] is aimed at young adults, but anyone who remembers the exquisiteness of first love, the complications of teenage friendship or the pain of rejection will find something to relate to in this series of perfectly formed stories about feelings.' NZ Herald on Sunday 'David Levithan's latest release is timely and important but, most of all, it is astonishingly sophisticated...Levithan has outdone himself.' Courier Mail on Two Boys Kissing 'Levithan's self-conscious, analytical style marries perfectly with the plot. His musings on love, longing and human nature knit seamlessly with A's journey. Readers will devour his trademark poetic wordplay and cadences that feel as fresh as they were when he wrote Boy Meets Boy (2003). An awe-inspiring, thought-provoking reminder that love reaches beyond physical appearances or gender.' Kirkus Reviews on Every Day 'I'm not sure how David Levithan does it but with each book of his I read, I fall a little more in love with his writing style...a quick yet wonderful read and I highly recommend it for people who like beautifully written books which are just a little bit different.'
