Luke Rutledge’s A Man and His Pride

The Final Draft Great Conversations podcast is all about books, writing and literary culture. We’re dedicated to exploring Australian writing, looking into the issues that drive our storytelling to discover more from the books you love.

These are the stories that make us who we are.

Luke Rutledge

Luke Rutledge is a writer from Brisbane. A Man and His Pride is his debut novel.

A Man and His Pride

Until three months ago Sean had never even had a steady boyfriend. Now a drawer full of fancy undies and an ill advised moment with a bottle of mouthwash have him thinking he might never again.

Sean’s been out for years and relationships, let alone marriage are not things he sees in his future. But it feels like the whole world is talking about gays getting married while all Sean wants is his six-pack back.

When Sean meets William he discovers a new world. One of long term relationships and dogs you call your kid. It’s a million miles from Sean’s life but it’s got him wondering if it’s possible there’s more to life than Grindr and hookups?

Sean’s finally looking to the future, but inevitably that means he’ll have to come to terms with the past.

Final Draft is produced and presented by Andrew Pople
