Much of the story involves a film studio in Italy. The 20 year-old main character gains much experience in this gay erotic adventure. The book is very gritty and right from the start includes barely consensual sex in the form of a forced (by authority not violence) sex scene with an Italian customs inspector who starts out claiming to be searching the protagonist for drugs but ends up sexually molesting the boy..From there our young American lad goes to work for a film studio and becomes the object of lust from his co-workers. This excellent work has extraordinary pen and ink illustrations which are pure artistic genius. These fine art illustrations are highly regarded internationally by Zack fans who have created somewhat of a cult with their devotion to his art which is widely regarded as the best in gay imagery.

This book was apparently the first writing exercise from an artist, Zack, better known for his graphic art books. It was very simplistic and lacked richness of detail and developed characters. I can't recommend it.
