9780093322135: Forty-deuce: A play

FORTY-DEUCE explores the homosexual prostitution scene around 42nd Street in the 1980s, where a toxic mix of drugs, sex, and money make survival a brutal struggle. "A powerful and fascinating excursion into the nightmare world of homosexual prostitution. Although not for the squeamish, the impressive debut play by Alan Bowne is utterly convincing." -Variety "A harrowing drama - the world drawn by Bowne with such nose-rubbing honesty is a reality we all know exists." -New York Post "Simply dazzling, a sharply focused nether world, full of danger and surpassing sadness. These boys live on the bitter edge with survival a matter of day and night doubt. They're eerie men-children thrust from pubescence into a premature sort of middle age. There isn't room in their world for the conventional emotions." -Gannett Newspapers
