Description

A Memoir Like No Other

It’s the go-go 90s, but you’d never know it by Nick, who’s washed out of another corporate job, just scraping by playing drums in a wedding band and delivering roses in a tuxedo. When he meets the beautiful, worldly Rachael and her entourage of A-List gay friends, Nick thinks he’s finally found who and what he’s been looking for. Nick and Rachael marry, start a successful business, and plunge headlong into the burgeoning gay circuit party scene. Known around the world as the straight couple that party hearty with the boys, Nick and Rachael are riding high. But as his formerly fabulous friends self-immolate and Rachael burrows into addiction, Nick realizes that to save himself, he’ll have to escape the woman, and the world, he most desired.

Advance Praise

“I’ve just finished reading Nick Garnett’s electrifying memoir In The Pink, and now I need to catch my breath and recover. And then I’m going to read it again.

Here is a gritty and lyrical portrait of what it’s like living life way out there on the edge, spinning out of control, and staring into the abyss. Astonishing and slightly terrifying.” —John Dufresne, author of Louisiana Power & Light and Requiem, Mass.: a novel

“Fasten your seat belts and take this ride through the A-list, drug-fueled, sex-centric circuit party scene of the 1990’s with Nicholas Garnett. Like Bill Clegg’s memoir Portrait of an Addict as a Young Man and David Carr’s Night of the Gun, In the Pink will terrify, startle, and ultimately make you sigh with relief over Garnett’s unflinching look at this world and his place in it.”—Ann Hood, New York Times best-selling author of Comfort: A Journey Through Grief and The Knitting Circle

"By turns outrageous, hilarious, and truly moving, this unflinching chronicle of a profoundly mismatched straight couple's foray into the gay party and power circuit sets a new standard for the tale of wretched excess, and provides much-needed perspective along the way.Nick Garnett has—no lie—produced a book like none other." —Les Standiford, New York Times best-selling author of Last Train to Paradise and Bringing Adam Home

“In the Pink might read like one man’s heady quest to become the gayest straight man in America. But look deeper and it’s your story, what you’ve done to hang on to love, to live beyond labels while searching for your own, to find yourself after decades of getting so lost. Do yourself a favor: buy this book. Read it now.” —Anjanette Delgado, author of The Clairvoyant of Calle Ocho

“This one-of-a-kind, edge-of-your-seat life story exemplifies the proverbial hero’s journey. A journey that winds through the emotional complexities, contradictions, and nuances of the familial, romantic, and platonic relationships, set against the thrilling and tragic gay party scene of the 1990’s. Written with poetic flair and brave vulnerability, Garnett’s journey returns him to a truer self with hard-earned wisdom and gratitude for all of us to rejoice in.”—Richard Blanco, 2013 Presidential Inaugural Poet, author of The Prince of Los Cocuyos: A Miami Childhood
