“Patrick O’Hara is back for another adventure with his beloved niece and nephew. This time, they’re traveling to Italy ahead of his brother’s wedding. And like its predecessor, Steven Rowley’s sequel is a heartfelt and funny tale of grief, joy and self-discovery.” —E News

“Few authors possess the infectious mix of light- and heavy-heartedness that makes every Steven Rowley novel an experience; his gift is to make the reader laugh out loud one minute and clutch their chest the next. . . . Rowley returns to the world of the eponymous gay uncle of 2021’s The Guncle, this time sending sitcom star Patrick to Lake Como for his brother’s wedding.” —Electric Lit

“Hilarious and heartwarming.” –Brit & Co

“All the ingredients you have come to expect from a Steven Rowley novel are here (and elevated!). This story on the complicated bond of family is infused with so much heart and humor that it will have you cracking up with laughter on one page and wiping a tear away on the next. Reading a Steven Rowley novel always makes me appreciate being alive with the urge to call up my friends and family and say, ‘I love you!’” —Nantucket Magazine

“Maisie, Grant, and GUP, their Gay Uncle Patrick, return in Rowley’s funny, heartfelt sequel to The Guncle. . . . This follow-up has a humor and affection for the characters in a story with just the right amount of domestic tension but will still be a balm to readers.” —Library Journal

“Rowley’s cunning sequel is as much travelogue as uplifting love story, with happy endings all around.” —Booklist

“The wise-cracking and wisdom-dropping protagonist of The Guncle returns for more adventures in Rowley’s diverting sequel . . . The author’s fans will gobble this up.” —Publishers Weekly

“Few authors possess the infectious mix of light- and heavy-heartedness that makes every Steven Rowley novel an experience; his gift is to make the reader laugh out loud one minute and clutch their chest the next.” —Electric Lit

“From the New York Times bestselling author of The Celebrants comes the much-anticipated sequel to the Thurber Prize-Winning novel The Guncle, in which Patrick O’Hara is called back to his guncle duties . . . this time for a big family wedding in Italy.” —The Nerd Daily

“Steven Rowley’s 2022 hit, The Guncle, charmed readers with its heartwarming story and hilarious cast of characters. The sequel promises more of that, with an overseas twist.” —Queerty
