In the grand tradition of "My Secret Life" and Henry Miller's "Tropic of Cancer" and "Tropic of Capricorn," this palimpsest of a book, woven into a narrative from the secret journals of more than fifty years of the life of Bill Dingel, becomes a picaresque, or episodic, romance that shows a man who is a lover, not an abuser, of women, girls, boys and even ladyboys, as he moves through the east coast of America of the 50s and the west coast in San Francisco of the 60s, and then through Asia as well, in the 70s through the 90s, finding love and lovers in his own inimitable style. The book is also his personal commentary on life and mores in the second half of the twentieth century, written by a man full of curiosity and openness, with a sense of humor about who he is and how he expresses it. Join Bill as he travels through America and Asia, helping others as he helps himself, a man who truly likes other people and has no inhibitions about exploring the possibilities of love despite a world seemingly full of moralists, government spies and censors, and religious right-wingers. He believes in persuasion, not coercion, and detests men who abuse and cause pain in order to get pleasure. Yet his experiences are often amazing. Bill brings the reader into his unusual world, a world that few see and less experience.
