Beschreibung des Verlags
The New York Times bestselling novel from John Green, the author of multi-million bestseller The Fault in Our Stars, and David Levithan.
One cold night, in a most unlikely corner of Chicago, Will Grayson crosses paths with . . . Will Grayson. Two guys with the same name, running in two very different circles, suddenly find their lives going in new and unexpected directions, and culminating in epic turns-of-heart and the most fabulous musical ever to grace the high-school stage.
Told in alternating voices from two award-winning authors - John Green (author of The Fault in Our Stars) and David Levithan (author of Boy Meets Boy) - this unique collaborative novel features a double helping of the heart and humour that has won both authors legions of fans.
'Funny, rude and original' - New York Times Book Review
'Will have readers simultaneously laughing, crying and singing at the top of their lungs' - Kirkus Reviews
'This novel has serious buzz' - Entertainment Weekly
In alternating chapters, the authors track two teens, both named Will Grayson, who accidentally meet halfway through the novel, perhaps changing the trajectory of both of their lives. One Will is vintage Green: a smart nerd whose rules to live by include don't care too much, with a scene-stealing sidekick Tiny Cooper, a large, flamboyantly gay classmate intent on staging an autobiographical musical. The other will (lowercase throughout) is angry and depressed; the one bright spot in his existence is an online friendship with Isaac. When will agrees to meet Isaac one night in Chicago, readers know nothing good will happen and they will be wrong. A well-orchestrated big reveal takes the story in a new direction, one that gives (lowercase) will greater dimension. The ending is laudable but highly implausible. The journey to it is full of comic bits, mostly provided by the irrepressible Tiny, who needs his own novel. Frank sexual language a shot at a bar tastes like Satan's fire cock pushes this one to high school, where its message of embracing love in all its forms ought to find a receptive audience. Ages 14 up.
