The Magnificent Sons is a witty, warm and wonderful novel. It has a terrific cast of characters, some really rich relationships, and offers a fascinating insight into both bisexuality and sibling rivalry. As ever, Justin Myers is as sharp as a stiletto and had me laughing like a particularly filthy drain
This really is a touching, witty book. Myers cements his reputation for wry insights into modern sexuality
A funny, keenly observed tale about relationships and identity
Does exactly what it says on the tin: MAGNIFICENT. Funny, beautifully observed and moving
Brilliant. I fell in love with Jake and there was something special about reading the brothers' stories unfold while keeping one eye on my own magnificent sons playing in our garden
Funny, kind, insightful book, about those who get left behind. Sensitive, honest, and never afraid to take the piss
With razor sharp observation, this coming of age story is full of heart
Really funny, really moving, really sweet, a really great read . . . I tore through it . . . Love it!
In sparklingly astute prose Justin Myers pins down what it is to be struggling to articulate your sexuality in your thirties, and all the accompanying confusion, pain, family tensions and friendship shifts. Original, compelling, touching and funny
Just wonderful. Warm, funny and believable, with characters you feel you know. And with, as ever, some enviably KILLER lines . . .
Justin Myers (AKA The Guyliner) brings his signature wit and empathy to this portrait of a larger-than-life family at a crossroads. It sparkles with humour and some great set pieces underpinned by a reflective layer concerned with self-and mutual acceptance. He does a good job of conveying the incomprehension and preconceptions which surround bisexuality
The Magnificent Sons is a compelling story that explores the intricacies of family and sexuality, while being entertaining and amusing; pick yourself a sunny afternoon and devour it!
Tales Of The City for a new generation . . . I fell hard and fast for this and wasn't ready for it to end. It's an exceptional read, smart, touching, razor-sharp one-liners, a joyous, gorgeous, life-affirming read with characters that burst from the page yet remain believable. I fell utterly in love with it
