5310 Publishing's owner, Eric Williams, is very happy. "Ever since we announced Quigley's book, we have been getting a lot of praise. Alex and I are very happy with the results.

The Complexities of Love is about an Australian teen who learns about life, hidden love, and family secrets. Mark knows he's different from the other boys, hiding his attraction for his best friend. When Mark tries to discover the truth behind his best friend's absence, upsetting family secrets come to light.
The book got reviewed by Kirkus Reviews last month: "Mark's interest in cooking, future dreams of living openly as a gay man, and desire to make a living as a chef add elements of lightness and hope. The characters deal with trauma, mental illness, and addiction throughout the story. The discussions of family bonds, complex sibling relationships, finding a place to belong, and the reveal of Mark's family history are intriguing and messily realistic..."
The Complexities of Love is available wherever books are sold, in-person from major retailers in the United States, Australia, United Kingdom, Europe, and Canada, and worldwide online. The book is available as a paperback and ebook. Readers can click here to learn more about this novel and see where it is available.
