Meet Zach. He's young, smart, ambitious, energetic and sexy. After graduating high school, he heads to college with dreams of joining his favorite marching band, the Florida A&M University Marching '100'. His world changes the day he steps on FAMU's campus. During his first semester at FAMU, Zach creates unbreakable bonds with select band mates that help shape the rest of his life. While Zach builds a secret relationship with a top ranking band leader, there is only one dude he really wants, but can't have. As a result, the two build a close-knit friendship that raises questions about their sexualities within the band. In balancing his new love life-in addition to class, the issues with his mother and the stress of band practice-he also deals with hazing, theft and a band director who does everything possible to make Zach's life a living hell. Will Zach achieve his dream of joining this world famous marching band, or will he give into the pressure and quit? Will he overcome all the obstacles thrown his way and make it through the season?

In 2001, Cormac McAnallen was voted Young Footballer of the Year. In 2003, he helped Tyrone to its first-ever All-Ireland championship win, and was named an All-Star. He was, by any measure, one of the best and most promising young footballers in Ireland. But in March 2004, Cormac McAnallen died suddenly of an undetected heart condition. He was, truly, a young star cut down just as he entered his prime. As he worked his way up through the ranks of club, school and inter-county football, Cormac almost always had his brother Dónal - just a year older - by his side. Nobody else in the world knew as well as Dónal did how badly Cormac wanted to succeed, how hard he worked, or how much thought he put into his game. In The Pursuit of Perfection, Dónal McAnallen draws upon Cormac's diaries and frank self-assessments, and his own memories of their experiences, to create a remarkable portrait of a young sportsman's mindset and methods. It is both one of the most remarkable GAA books ever written and - in its intimacy and depth - a book that transcends Gaelic games. 'Exceptional ... Unique and compelling, raw and moving ... Much better than any myth or legend' Paul Rouse, Irish Examiner 'A touching, sometimes bracing biography ... It feels like a final word, the family's last say on how he lived and how he died and how he ought to be remembered.' Malachy Clerkin, Irish Times 'Beautifully told' Dermot Crowe, Sunday Independent 'Stirs something deep around the concept of brotherhood' Belfast Telegraph 'Heart-rending ... It is a painstakingly researched work - aided by the fact that both brothers kept meticulous diaries - and what's striking about the story is the pressure that Cormac was under despite or maybe because of his success with Tyrone' Sunday World
