Welcome to the second installment in the adventures of Daniel Garneau, his eccentric family and friends. When a long-lost sister shows up as a trans man named Luke, a series of precipitous events throws the lives of boyfriends Daniel and David into turmoil. While David attends an extravagant family reunion in Sicily, Daniel's ex Marcus plans the world-premiere of his one-man show. The couple's vertiginous exploration of sex, intimacy and desire comes to a head when a shocking revelation tests their commitment and future together. Tales from the Bottom of My Sole (2020) is the stand-alone sequel to David Kingston Yeh's debut novel, A Boy at the Edge of the World (2018). It is a “confabulated fictional memoir” told by Daniel Garneau, a young gay man in search of himself. In the end, his story is the story of every man: a rollicking dramedy and a philosophical reflection on reconciliation, love and family.
Outside, the snow was coming down harder than ever. I was just starting to have visions of Luke and David frozen somewhere in an alleyway clutching six-guns, with bullet holes in each of their hearts.
