"I read HOLA PAPI in one sitting-- something that hasn't happened to me in A WHILE, especially during lockdown when I can't seem to focus on anything for more than a few pages at a time. I found myself completely drawn in and enveloped in John Paul Brammer's voice. Part advice column, part memoir, HOLA PAPI is warm, smart, insightful, emotional, at times sad, but mostly laugh-out-loud funny and touching. I think readers will love this book, whether they're familiar with Brammer's work or not, and find a good friend in its pages, reaching out and reminding them they're not alone."

Description


From popular LGBTQ advice columnist and writer John Paul Brammer comes a hilarious, heartwarming memoir-in-essays chronicling his journey growing up as a queer, mixed-race Chicano kid in American's heartland to becoming the "Picante Carrie Bradshaw" of his generation.The first time someone called John Paul (JP) Brammer "Papi" was on the popular gay hookup app Grindr. At first, it was flattering; JP took this as white-guy speak for "hey, handsome." Who doesn't want to be called handsome? But then it happened again and again...and again, leaving JP wondering: Who the hell is Papi? What started as a racialized moniker given to him on a hookup app soon became the inspiration for his now wildly popular advice column " Hola Papi ", launching his career as the Cheryl Strayed for young queer people everywhere--and some straight people too. JP had his doubts at first--what advice could he really offer while he himself stumbled through his early 20s? Sometimes the best advice to dole outcomes from looking within, which is what JP has done in his column and book--and readers have flocked to him for honest, heartfelt wisdom, and of course a few laughs. In Hola Papi , JP shares his story of growing up biracial and in the closet against the backdrop of America's heartland, while attempting to answer some of life's toughest 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. With wit and wisdom in equal measure, Hola Papi is for anyone--gay, straight, and everything in between--who has ever taken stock of their unique place in the world, offering considered advice, intelligent discourse, and fits of laughter along the way. As #1 New York Times bestselling author Shea Serrano says: "I loved Hola Papi I'm certain you will too.
