In a world where every desire can easily be fulfilled, life is a luxurious escapade of excess and indulgence. Follow the exploits of eight gay men, who become four infamous couples, as their lives humorously intersect and tragically intertwine against the backdrop of the international gay party scene. These four couples scheme, maneuver, and struggle their way through a star-studded world virtually unknown to those on the outside.

The HardBody Chronicles captures the zeitgeist of that moment and unveils the glamour and absurdity that enveloped it. From Miami’s stunning White Party to the inferno of naked flesh at the Black Party, from the 24-hour clubs of Ibiza to the joyous Morning Party on Fire Island, it was a time to celebrate life.

For those who knew this period, this book will make you laugh, smile, and maybe cry. It is a bittersweet piece of history - served up beautifully by Smyth and Barbieri.
