Synopsis: Winner of the First Annual Editors' Book Award. The story of a Times Square hustler called Sinbad the Sailor and Saul, a brilliant, self-destructive, alcoholic, thoroughly dominating character who may be the only love Sindab will ever know. Paul T. Rogers' insight into life and devotion in New York's most infamous district made Saul's Book a literary sensation; the author's tragic demise in that same world made his first and only novel legendary.
Review: Saul's Book was first published by Pushcart Press in 1983 and awarded the Editor's Book Award as one of the outstanding novels of the year. It was an ironic moment; the book had been turned down by more than a dozen mainstream houses, and the outpouring of rave reviews validated the book's artistic and social importance. Shocking, brutal, and unrepentantly literary, Saul's Book tells the story of Sinbad, a teenage hustler, and Saul, his older, criminal lover. A cross between Last Exit to Brooklyn and City of Night, Saul's Book is an honest, unsparing and frightening look not only at life on the streets, but at how salvation of any sort comes at an enormous price. Out of print for almost a decade, the reissue of Saul's Book is an important literary event.
