Sex, Lies and the Oscar: The Story of Sebastian Long

Year of My Sticky: A Novel In his new fictional memoir Year of My Sticky: A Novel, debut author Sebastian Long traces his arduous trek through hip milestones of self-annihilation and stardom played out on international film sets, photography studios, first-class hotel suites, sex clubs and even hospital birthing suites. Twenty-eight-year-old Sebastian Long has been called the best actor of his generation. Discovered while he was performing in cheap fight pictures in Morocco, Sebastian wins an Oscar for his breakthrough role in the film Checkmate. His performance is raw, surprising and powerful – a calculated dance with sexual taboo – just the ticket he needs to enter the spotlight and unleash his talent on a massive American audience. However, his performance isn’t the only contributing factor to the Oscar win. Turns out Paramount Pictures helped Sebastian get the award by positioning him in the media as the first gay contender, his handlers making Sebastian the latest trend. The only problem is that Sebastian is married and the father of two young children. Obviously, his wife and family are hidden from the media. Year of My Sticky: A Novel Gay protest groups eventually see through the charade and hurl tomatoes and shout “$traight $ucce$$!” as Sebastian drives his kids to preschool one day. At the same time the mainstream media continues to celebrate “America’s first gay contender,” a “genius gay poster boy.” Every film studio wants Sebastian to perform a gay role in their next movie – that is, until Sebastian brings his wife to the Oscars and kisses her on international TV. As Paramount threatens to sue him for breaking their secret gay pact and the gay protest groups go ballistic, Sebastian finds himself trapped in a movie-star life of uncontrolled ambition – an ambition that ultimately destroys his marriage and almost ruins his career. Can Sebastian keep his marriage together as he signs a new six-picture contract that demands he maintain his fake homosexuality and keep his family hidden in the shadows? Can he maintain his honesty in his performances despite the media manipulation and angry mobs that constantly surround him? Find out in Long’s telling fictional memoir about the tempting choice of today’s celebrities, “Year of My Sticky,” a book that promises as much insight into the compromises of Hollywood as it does heartfelt dilemmas of love and sexuality in the modern age.
