Blackbird by Larry Duplechan
Book DescriptionThis is a coming-of-age novel about growing up black and gay in Southern California. The lead character, Johnnie Ray Rousseau, is a high-school student upset at losing the lead role in the school staging of Romeo and Juliet. As if that weren't enough, his best friend has been beaten badly by his father and his girlfriend is pressuring him to have sex for the first time. All the while, he's intrigued by Marshall MacNeill, whom he meets at an audition and is surely the sexiest man to walk God's green earth - at least according to Johnnie Ray. This novel of adolescent awakening is as fresh and heartfelt as it was when first published by St. Martin's Press in 1968. With an introduction by Michael Nava, who is best known for his gay mystery novels featuring Henry Rios, five of which have won Lambda Literary Awards, including "Golden Boys and Hometown" (both published by Alyson).
