The story, told in reverse order, begins with 36-year-old Theo and his search for erotic and emotional freedom, and slowly unravels back to a childhood in the juvenile detention centers of Chicago.

Without judgement, Stephen Elliott traces a life defined by yearning - for love, for pain, for certainty. His unflinching gaze reveals the difficulty of simple truths and the possibility of transcendence in the face of unforgivable crimes.

'Spare, erotic, and beautiful.' -JT LeRoy
