"‘I met him that summer, to, and it’s hard to believe in light of what happened that I gave up my dreams for him.’ The boy met by the unnamed narrator of this moving, chilling novel of sexual awakening, desire, and death is Stevie, a mentally retarded 15-year-old. The setting is Charleston. And the dreams are erotic, irresistible, and forbidden in this remarkable novel about gay life in the South by Harlan Greene. Harlan Greene’s lush, brilliantly written story haunts us with its final twist, and with a narrator whose unflinching honesty conjures up memories of an imperfect adolescence and an inescapable vulnerability to a lover’s lies."; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
