The Magnificent Sons by Justin Myers

The Magnificent Sons by Justin Myers


Two brothers. Two different journeys. The same hope of a magnificent future.

At twenty-nine, Jake D’Arcy has finally got his life just right. Job with prospects: check. Steady girlfriend: check. Keeping his exhausting, boisterous family at bay: check. So why isn’t he happier?

When his confident, much-adored younger brother Trick comes out as gay to a rapturous response, Jake realises he has questions about his own repressed bisexuality, and that he can’t wait any longer to find his answers.

As Trick begins to struggle with navigating the murky waters of adult relationships, Jake must confront himself and those closest to him. He’s beginning to believe his own life could be magnificent, if he can be brave enough to make it happen . . .




'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.'  - John Marrs


'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.'  - Matt Cain


'This really is a touching, witty book. Myers cements his reputation for wry insights into modern sexuality.'  - Gareth Rubin


'Funny, kind, insightful book, about those who get left behind. Sensitive, honest, and never afraid to take the piss.' - Russell T Davies
