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.

Review: "Savagely comic and . . . brilliant . . . the picaresque authority of a Joycean Hell's Angel . . . an unnerving and utterly persuasive rendition of hell." --"The New York Times Book Review" "There is a dazzling vitality to this first novel. The language is raw; the characters are fresh and outrageous; the style is wicked and impudent . . . This offbeat novel is outstanding and certain to be talked about." --"Library Journal"
