"Dragged!! To His Senses" is a historical comedy set in 1857 New York and Georgia in which a jaded, cross-dressing prostitute named Clinton Friendly tries to sell away his transvestism to the devil in exchange for a fabulous Georgian Cotton Plantation, all the slaves and money a boy/girl could possibly want, and the masculine wardrobe of a father he never knew he had. The book hysterically romps through a seriously avoided part of American history with homage paid to Wilde's "Picture of Dorian Gray," Mitchell's "Gone With The Wind," and other icons of 19th and 20t Century literature, but it also serously explores the issue of human sexuality and the acceptance or rejection of it within each of us. The hero of the book, in eventually coming to grips with his own sexuality, seems to answer the question, is there no price to pay when trading in a corset for a union suit?
