Fall 1970 saw John Valentine writing for a fragile underground paper in downtown Hollywood. “Peeling wallpaper. Broken windows. Unlockable locks. Most slimlike quarters I’ve ever had. The building was the streetkids’ community center. Anyone looking for a crashpad looked first there… It was a sexual paradise.” This classic of gay erotica was described by the Advocate as “a gorgeously witty account of the author’s single-minded pursuit of young men”.
