BearCity: The Novel
Novelization by Lawrence Ferber
Based upon the screenplay
by Doug Langway & Lawrence Ferber
Bear Bones Books proudly presents its newest title, BearCity: The Novel, based on the breakout hit feature-length romantic comedy film.
BearCity follows the funny, romantic, and often dramatic adventures of a tight-knit pack of bears, cubs, and friends in New York City as they gear up for a big party weekend.
A hirsute Sex and the City set in the City’s gay men’s “Bear” scene, the BearCity story brings together these men, their friends, tricks, and lovers, and a cast of colorful, hirsute characters. They experience comical mishaps, lusty and romantic encounters, and a staggering variety of male body types.
Using satire and humor, BearCity, the novel explores these men’s self-image issues, as well as poking fun at aspects of urban gay and bisexual male lifestyles, all while celebrating the worldwide community of homomasculine men who call themselves Bears.
BearCity also features 16 b/w photo images chosen by the author and director from the hi-res digital film, as well as a dozen behind-the-scenes photos taken by Lawrence Ferber.
