Résumé
On the fringes of the music scene in a Southern college town, a lonely young student driven to fl ee a troubled adolescence pursues and forms a life-altering relationship with an acclaimed artist-musician. Their understanding develops in a pattern of sex and reticence, soon impacting both their paths and greatly shifting expectations. Written as if telling the truth was a matter of survival (Andrew O'Hagan), it is a queer bildungsroman.
