Abstract:

When the distant mother he hasn't seen in ten years desperately calls him home, struggling actor Wally Day finds his carefully constructed world falling in on itself. Now he must confront the reasons he left his hometown in a cloud of anger, shame, and guilt, he must look face-to-face upon the ghosts of his past: his mother; his abusive father; the life-affirming transsexual whose love had given Wally refuge; and most of all, the man whose memory still haunts him, whose love for Wally had sent him to jail. But Wally isn't the only one who's confronting ghosts.--From publisher description.
