The new editions do not include an epilogue because Ed is currently hard at work on the sequel, which picks up his and his incredible niece's story nearly ten years after the original!




Ed’s essay, “Lay It All Down” will be published in May, 2007 in the anthology Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys: True Tales of Love, Lust, and Friendship Between Straight Women and Gay Men (Dutton). Contributors include Andrew Solomon (National Book Award Winner for The Noonday Demon), Cindy Chupack (Sex and the City), Gigi Levangie Grazer (The Starter Wife), Simon Doonan (Confessions of a Window Dresser), and Ayelet Waldman (Love and Other Pursuits). All of the authors are donating a share of their proceeds to The Trevor Project, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping gay teens.

The Breakfast with Tiffany launch party, held at BLVD in Manhattan’s Nolita on June 16th, raised a grand total of $9,000 for Living Beyond Belief, a non-profit organization created in memory of AIDS activist Wayne Fischer. Living Beyond Belief provides college stipends to New York City public school students who participate in HIV/AIDS prevention education while seniors in high school. Three hundred people attended the event, which was hosted by Oscar nominee Patricia Clarkson, Golden Globe winner Sally Kirkland, actor/playwright/novelist Charles Busch, and downtown diva Flotilla De Barge. The lively crowd was treated to a rousing rendition of “Moon River,” sung by legendary chanteuse Margaret Whiting.
