‘I was looking at the boys. I’d stare at their perfect bodies, looking for the seams’.
Mark returns home for the death of his father. Confronted by his twin brother Gary and old friend Sullivan, he defends his new life to those who know him best as Laura.
Battling through the blurry memories of their troubled relationship, he must decide on how to remember ‘Big Ted Donovan’.
Can Mark face his past and find out what it truly means to be his own man?
Luck Just Kissed You Hello is beautiful, blistering and darkly funny, peeling back the layers of masculinity to discover how our experiences shape who we are.
