LGBTQ advice columnist John Paul Brammer writes a ';wise and charming' (David Sedaris) memoir-in-essays chronicling his journey from a queer, mixed-race kid in America's heartland to becoming the ';Chicano Carrie Bradshaw' of his generation. ';A master class of tone and tenderness.' The New York Times Book Review (Editors' Choice) ';Should be required reading.' Los Angeles TimesThe first time someone called John Paul (JP) Brammer ';Papi' was on the gay hookup app Grindr. At first, it was flattering; JP took this as white-guy speak for ';hey, handsome.' But then it happened again and againand again, leaving JP wondering: Who the hell is Papi? Soon, this racialized moniker became the inspiration for his now wildly popular advice column ';Hola Papi!,' launching his career as the Cheryl Strayed for young queer people everywhereand some straight people too. JP had his doubts at firstwhat advice could he really offer while he himself stumbled through his early twenties? Sometimes the best advice comes from looking within, which is what JP does in his column and bookand readers have flocked to him for honest, heartfelt wisdom, and more than a few laughs. In this hilarious, tenderhearted book, JP shares his story of growing up biracial and in the closet in America's heartland, while attempting to answer some of life's most challenging questions: How do I let go of the past? How do I become the person I want to be? Is there such a thing as being too gay? Should I hook up with my grade school bully now that he's out of the closet? Questions we've all asked ourselves, surely. Hola Papi! is ';a warm, witty compendium of hard-won life lessons,' (Harper's Bazaar) for anyonegay, straight, and everything in betweenwho has ever taken stock of their unique place in the world.
