In this updated edition, which includes a bonus epilogue, Bruce Hulse revisits his life where his memoir ended. Readers find Hulse as a successful model of age.   While most models fade away with age, Bruce’s career continues to thrive.   And while living through many perils, Bruce tells, for the first in print, of his recent near-death experience that forever changed his life.  Hulse comments that he not only is a survivor, but first and foremost – a model. Older, grayer, and without a doubt – wiser.

Today, Bruce is an accomplished surfer, a professional photographer, and continues to be one of the longest-working models in the industry.

“The book is an enjoyable, easy read filled with lots of sexual encounters….the book also offers a critical, philosophical look at the culture of modeling.”
