My first book, Worker Names, is out. It’s a mini-collection of 3 short stories, See if you can peep the theme:
“Worker Name”: a wary hustler finds himself in a hostage situation with a yuppie on crack and a Bulgarian hipster boy.
“Raunch Daddy”: an earnest young hustler meets a Mexican novelist with a nose for pleasure and tragedy.
“Traumatic Book Review: Alive, by Piers Paul Read” two former hustlers reunite for a weekend of reckonings in a Vermont summer home.
My thanks to Fiction Judge Brontez Purnell for upping me, my thanks to Bruce Benderson for his kind words.
I’m very proud to have the work of Alvin Baltrop as the cover art. Read more about this pioneering gay African-American photographer here.
