About this title

Synopsis:

Joe Speaker is a barker at a strip joint who has a heroin habit. After a botched robbery and the violent murder of a prostitute, Joe is thrown in jail. This story of murder and retribution was written by a man who won a PEN contest for convicts, while serving a sentence for armed robbery.

About the Author:

Seth Morgan (1949–1990) was an American novelist whose sole published title, Homeboy, received much critical acclaim. Morgan drew from his own experiences with San Francisco drug culture and prison in order to write what the New York Times called “an unnerving and utterly persuasive rendition of hell.”

As a young boy, Morgan attended many elite private schools, including St. Bernard’s School in New York and the American School in Switzerland. He also briefly attended the University of California, Berkeley, before dropping out and moving in with singer Janis Joplin. They became engaged shortly before she died. At the time of his own death in a motorcycle accident, Morgan was under contract for a second novel, set in New Orleans and titled Mambo Mephiste.
