It’s New York City in the 1950s—not the friendliest time and place for a young man to try to make sense of his sexuality, but possibly one of the more interesting ones. If that young man discovers he is attracted to both men and women, his path of self-discovery through the East Village and Tompkins Square Park will be particularly tangled and bewildering.
As Timmy winds his way into, and out of, the winding paths of the park, the grid of the streets and alleys—and the good graces, pants and hearts of men and women alike, he will learn a great deal more than technique. He will learn who he can trust and who he should run from; who he wants and who wants him; when to fight his desire and when to shamelessly embrace it.
“Dementiuk does not hold back; he writes about everything and his eroticism is quite bold. I believe that it is his boldness that makes Dementiuk such a wonderful read. We read it and it is over and we move on except for one small fact: it is not easy to move on because everything is so real—and he never fails to give us a good story. ...Mykola Dementiuk goes where others seem afraid to go.” —Amos Lassen
