Abstract:

Newell never really belonged in Pastel, Alabama. Ready for a change, he buys a one-way ticket to New Orleans. It's 1978 and the rambunctious city beckons with its famous promise of bright lights, excitement, and men everywhere. Newell finds a job in a pornographic bookstore and rents a room in the French Quarter. His good nature, good looks, and a daring stunt in a popular bar make him a quick favorite. Soon he has friends. Some are harmless, like Henry, a pudgy sidekick who's a frequent denizen of the porn shop's movie booths. Others prove more dangerous, like party-boy Mark, Newell's first beau, who has a penchant for recreational drugs. Finally, Newell encounters the volatile Jack, who shows Newell the blackest heart of the city. This novel reveals what can happen when dreams are fulfilled.--From publisher description.
