In GOD SAYS NO, James Hannaham’s award winning debut novel, Gary Gray is a young, black, closeted Christian struggling with the opposition of his sexual desires and his deep religious beliefs while living in the South. At nineteen Gary marries his first girlfriend, a fellow student from Central Florida Christian College who loves God and Disney World as much as he does. But after the wedding, and the birth of their daughter, Gary still finds himself visiting rest-stop bathrooms to do “guy stuff.” Driven by desperation and religious visions, the path that Gary Gray takes—from revival meetings to out life in Atlanta to a prayaway-the-gay ministry in Memphis, Tennessee—gives a riveting picture of how a life like his can be lived, and how it can’t. A Stonewall Book Award Pick and a finalist for the Lambda Literary Award for Gay Debut Fiction, GOD SAYS NO was also chosen one of the Best New Paperbacks of the summer by Entertainment Weekly.

James Hannaham received an MFA from the Michener Center for Writers at the University of Texas. He lives in Brooklyn and teaches at the Pratt Institute and The New School.
