Toland Polk, the son of an uneducated white carpenter, has grown up in the Southern town of Clayfield. It is the 1960s, a time of passionate beliefs and violent emotions, and Clayfield's citizens are divided in the fight over segregation. As Toland fights on the side of the civil rights activists, he slowly begins to realize that he also has a more personal battle - to accept that he is gay.
With a subtle yet intricate plot, and distinctively evocative illustrations, STUCK RUBBER BABY is an unflinchingly honest look at one man's world of fears, dreams, and prejudice.
