Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fiction. Gay/Lesbian Studies. New to SPD. A second novel by Bay Area writer Paul Reidinger, whose first novel, The Best Man, was named one of the best novels of 1986 by the American Library Association. In THE CITY KID, he presents Guy Griffith — gay, 40, and less than satisfied with the current state of his life. He comes to San Francisco like many before him - as a refugee from some intimacy gone disastrously wrong in the huge nation east of the bay. When he meets sixteen-year-old Doug Whitmore on a ridge overlooking a nude beach, he surrenders with pleasure to the boy's radiant adolescent energy. Guy doesn't yet understand how deeply rooted Doug's hurts and confusions are, nor how dangerous they might come to be, and he is not entirely willing to admit, even to himself, how susceptible he is to the fugitive attraction that he and Doug both feel.
