Larger-than-life character Tiny Cooper, from John Green and David Levithan's bestselling novel Will Grayson, Will Grayson, finally tells his own story the only way he knows how - as a stupendous musical.
In this novel-in-musical-form, readers will experience all of Hold Me Closer, the autobiographical musical written by and staring Tiny Cooper. Filled with humour, pain, and 'big, lively, belty' musical numbers, readers will finally learn Tiny's full story, from his birth and childhood to his quest for love and his infamous eighteen ex-boyfriends.
David Levithan is an award-winning and New York Times-bestselling author of young adult books, including Every Day, How They Met, Two Boys Kissing, Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist (with Rachel Cohn) and Will Grayson, Will Grayson (with John Green). He lives in New Jersey and spends his days in New York, editing and publishing other people's books.
