Published: Little, Brown and Company - September 20th, 2022

For me, Less was a near perfect novel so I was a little worried about reading a sequel but Less is Lost delivers. It's the Empire Strikes Back of gay male road caper fictions. A perfect summer read with lots of delights and more than a few poignant moments.
