Synopsis: San Francisco in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s.  It was a time of sexual, evolutionary, and political change with both glorious and nearly catastrophic consequences.  It was also a great time to be a straight young man in a gay old city.

It was a time for Morehead.

My Review:  Let me caution you that this is a very explicit book.  But once I accepted the language and visual images rolling around in my head, the story is quite good.  Dave Morehead is trying to find his own identity during a time of great change in San Francisco.  At first struggling to accept the lifestyle choices of those around him, he eventually gains great respect and friendship from those he formerly judged. 

Dave is not an easy character to like in the beginning.  He is crude, brash and self absorbed.  But as he grew and changed, so did my feelings toward him.  I began to like him and hold out hope that he would find his happiness.

Another great book from Jeffrey Hickey.  His humor is limitless and his story telling is thoroughly enjoyable.  Some of my favorite chapters are the ones titled “Work In The Eighties”.  I won’t tell you about them here, you need to read them for yourselves.
