Jimmy and Ian share a flat. Jimmy is "straight"; and Ian is "not". Neither are very "gay". One night Jimmy brings a girl home. He tries to get Ian and his friend to go out so he can have some privacy but Ian refuses. In fact, he gets very angry, leading to a fight. Jimmy's mother comes to visit Ian, and there ensues a mutual sexual attraction, which is consummated. The mother tries to get Ian to go to bed with her again; but Ian tells her he only did it because she reminded him of Jimmy. Ian hints Jimmy has a homosexual side which Jimmy is not aware of. This upsets the mother so much she has a fight with Jimmy which upsets her so much more she has a fatal automobile accident. In the end, Jimmy and Ian come to a deeper knowledge of themselves.


A good copy, with some scuffing and rubbing to the edges. Internally sound with clean pages and secure binding.
