About the Book: 1st Edition of HOMO GOGO MAN - written in the first person, this fictional story is about a sexually suppressed boy who learns to dance to express himself, dance for a living, and dance to love life. Starting in the disco era of the 70’s, the protagonist is introduced to the fast world of go-go dancing, hustling, drugs and underground clubs after his first man-on-man encounter while exploring Times Square after he arrives at college.The story continues on his odyssey to live the big life in New York City as he trips through clubs, more drugs, and a series of boyfriends for two decades until he bottoms out in his forties from too much of the above. "Homo GoGo Man," a play on words of the species ‘homo sapien’, is a tale of a gay man avoiding extinction.
