Synopsis: HOMEBOY, Seth Morgan's stunning novel, is a gritty, ribald, and frenetically lyrical odyssey through the Strip in San Francisco -a netherworld of whores, pimps, dealers, and junkies - to the hell of Coldwater Penitentiary. After a high-priced hooker is killed and one of the world's biggest diamonds is stolen, Joe Speaker, a strip-joint barker and dope addict, stumbles onto the missing jewel, is hunted down and put away for the murder. In prison, he finds that his troubles are just beginning.

About the Author: Seth Morgan was born in 1949. After dropping out of Berkeley he became Janis Joplin's lover and was her fiance at the time of her death. He then spent several years working at strip joints on Broadway, until he was arrested for armed robbery and sent to State Prison in California. Seth Morgan's writing career began when he won a PEN essay contest for convicts. He died in October 1990. He was working on a second novel.
