He's unabashedly frank. He's unrepentantly funny. In short, he's just the sort of person you hope you run into at the next cocktail party. Irreverent raconteur, Ken Sofronski weaves wisecracks and wisdom in Old, Gay & Fabulous, his true account of one life lived definantly out loud. As the old saying goes, there are eight million stories in New York. This one just happens to be worth reading. With equal parts charm, cheek, and candor, this absolutely fabulous memoir looks back on his singular life, from high glitz to low times, and back to fabulous again. It's a story of survival, pluck, and a good dose of mischief that at once tears at the heart, lifts the spirits, and always entertains.

Old, Gay & Fabulous, a memoir, is a story of my life and trying to rise above circumstances that I had no control over, particularly discovering at the age of 13 my mother was a lesbian wearing a leather jacket and motorcycle cap in the '50s before Brando. It was very painful having a mother who was more macho than I was as a teenager when other mothers wore frilly aprons and smelled of choclate chip cookies. My childhood and teenage years were very difficult because I didn't understand and when I began to understand, disbelief took over. My mother died while I was in the Army. From 18, when I acknowledged to myself that I was gay, up to the present time at 72, I have lived and loved in New York City getting through the debauchery of the '60s and '70s, escaping AIDS, while maintaining and acting and writing career. I have appeared in numerous films and wrote one play, I Played the Palace. Old, Gay & Fabulous is my first novel.
