Written by HOWARD CRUSE Art and new cover by HOWARD CRUSE The groundbreaking, award-winning semi autobiographical graphic novel returns in a new 15th anniversary edition featuring an introduction by Alison Bechdel, award-winning author of Fun Home. In the 1960s American South, a young gas-station attendant named Toland Polk is rejected from the Army draft for admitting "homosexual tendencies," and falls in with a close-knit group of young locals yearning to break from the conformity of their hometown through civil rights activism, folk music and upstart communality of race-mixing, gay-friendly nightclubs. Toland's story is both deeply personal and epic in scope, as his search for identity plays out against the brutal fight over segregation, an unplanned pregnancy and small-town bigotry, aided by an unforgettable supporting cast. "A remarkable achievement, a story so richly drawn - in both senses of the word - that it will pull you, headlong, into a bottomless world of hopes, fears, dreams and the all-too-real prejudice witnessed by its author." - THE NEW YORK TIMES "Cruse's visceral, visual account of America's recent past contributes with grace and force to what we can only continue to hope is history's bend toward justice." - ALISON BECHDEL, from her introduction
