Most people would look at Derek and say he'd made it in life. A fun job, a handsome boyfriend, and an exciting life in New York City. But one night, staring at his reflection in the window of the subway as it barrels down Lexington Avenue, Derek realizes he's fooling himself-and everyone else, too. Derek gets off the train and goes home. Only t home to his tiny Manhattan apartment, but home to Tennessee-which is definitely t NYC. Home to his family-and to all the other people he kws, or thinks he kws, and who think they kw him. Home to football games, and dive bars, and high school buddies who have kwn him forever. Home to old situations...and to new possibilities. At turns lighthearted, poignant, and surprising, Home Is a Fire is a delightful read for anyone who believes that whoever said You can't go home again was mistaken. It's just t exactly how you pictured it.
Jordan Nasser left his dream job behind and took the opportunity to re-examine his life-an experience he highly recommends if you ever have the chance. A graduate of the University of Tennessee, he was raised in the South before moving to New York City. He currently lives and writes in Stockholm, Sweden and Nice, France. In his debut novel, Home Is a Fire, he drew upon his experiences as a gay man in the South. Outstanding reviews placed the book on the Amazon top ten rated LGBT fiction list. That story continues in his second novel, The Fire Went Wild. www.jordannasser.com
