Praise for GAY MEN DON’T GET FAT by Simon Doonan:


"Simon Doonan is one funny gay nugget."
—Chelsea Handler

"If I were really short, gay, and way funnier than I am now, I would try to pass myself off as Simon Doonan."
—Malcolm Gladwell

"Simon Doonan is the Auntie Mame every up-and-coming future legend should have, the gay best friend who always gives it to you straight."

"Simon writes like a lethal combo of Robert Benchley and Dorothy Parker. I laughed so hard while reading this book I nearly split my Spanx."
—Joan Rivers

"The most un-tragic book about being gay ever written."
—John Waters

"Dining with Mr. Doonan is like lunching with the ‘Jersey Shore’-era grandnephew of Oscar Wilde….there are times when his thoughts on the sexual orientation of food can be unexpectedly eye-opening."
—Jeff Gordinier, The New York Times


"[D]eliciously mischievous wit…Doonan is the David Sedaris of the style universe."
—Christopher Muther, The Boston Globe


“Blisteringly funny.”
Kirkus Reviews


“[Gay Men Don’t Get Fat] will certainly have you laughing until your sides hurt.”
—Alyssa Vingan, Marie Claire


“In addition to educating those not-in-the-know, Doonan regales readers with tongue-in-cheek commentary and witchy barbs that bespeak a more militant Joan Rivers.”
Publishers Weekly


“The sense of humor … is matched by a very real motivation to empower women.”

—Kerry Pieri, Harper’s Bazaar
