The story starts in small town America where two young men travel to San Francisco to find fame and fortune. Along the way they meet crazy preachers, gangsters, a grand aunt of a transvestite and find love.

One of my favorite parts is the outing of a corrupt and sadistic faith healer, as I understand it based on the practices of a real preacher who was ripping off his congregation. The book is worth a read just for this sub-story alone, although there are many other excellent sub plots that carry through the book

The author has clearly researched the book well, in a recent visit to San Francisco I was able to find a few of the notable sights.

Thouroughly recommended

An absolutely delightful tale of two sheltered young men from middle America venturing to the shining city searching for more. In their attempt to settle into San Francisco they find themselves caught up in a hilarious sequence of events that snowballs out of one, spontaneous decision to pretend to be gay for momentary convenience. As a result, they quickly find themselves wrapped up in a bizarre and exciting world that teaches them (and us) valuable lessons about love, life, and humanity.

This is a beautifully crafted story. It took me into a world I knew nothing about and then whipped me around on an extremely fun ride. I was left with an overwhelming sense of well-being and a renewed appreciation for the diversity of mankind.

I read this in a single sitting on the front porch on a sunny fall day roughly a year ago. I laughed out loud, I read for pages on end with my mouth literally agape, and on more than one occasion I sobbed like a baby. When done, I sat quietly in bliss watching the wind in the trees with a huge grin on my face. It was as if the entire world were giving me a big warm hug. If Amazon were to let each reader give only one book more than 5 stars, I most surely would be using mine right now.

HIGHLY recommended.

I now give this book as gifts to friends and people that are special in my life. The most unbelievable parts of this book are the ones that actually happened. You will smile, laugh, and grieve. LGBT people will be able to relate to many aspects of this book. If you have an LGBT family member or friend I would highly recommend you read this. If you love to laugh and want to discover a wonderful and beautiful out look on life I would recommend this bool.
