Inhaltsangabe: Donald Rawley's remarkable writing has already graced the pages of The New Yorker, Harper's, and numerous other literary publications. In his debut novel, Rawley weaves his lush prose into a story of boyhood that is as arrestingly beautiful as it is devastating. Through the eyes of ten-year-old Lindsay Paul ("L.P.") Fowler--a hard, pretty and effeminate only child in a wealthy Arizona family--the reader relives the long, hot Southwestern summer of 1968; three months of days whose clarity is both perverse and frightening," L.P. remembers, "held without photographs or postcards or any other telling semblance to prove I existed, and that I survived. " Abandoned without warning by his self-involved mother and cruel, dictatorial grandmother, L.P. is sent off to spend a magical summer in the care of Betty, his grandmother's maid, in black South Phoenix. A former jazz singer at war with inner demons of her own, Betty is the only adult in L.P.'s small universe who has a place in her heart for the troubled boy,
