A 2015 Reader's Favorite Finalist, this tale of sex, loss,redemption and pharmaceuticals in the modern AIDS era that will make you laugh, break your heart, and inspire you. Leslie L. Smith's #SFCPT is a coming-of-age story - a teenage gay runaway turned hustler, David Matthews, is on a journey to find himself and his community. Along the way he is visited by a ghost, meets a transsexual nurse, and experiences a budding romance. Together these events change David's understanding of the grief he carries. This witty novel is also a touching look at what it is to be gay in today's world. It's also a saga about the last 25 years of gay sex and AIDS culture. Smith's characters look at difficult questions: safer sex, barebacking, personal responsibility, and current HIV prevention methods - it asks why gay men bareback even though HIV remains a threat among gay men. Discover why the Bay Area Reporter says #SFCPT is "an irresistible page-turner, that is inspirational without becoming treacly."From the Back Cover:
"Leslie Smith and I share more than a first name. He has such a wonderfully dry sense of humor. He has always been a favorite of mine. But who knew? He can write! This book is MY era! This book is the story of people I know! Or better put... OUR era.... OUR story. You will laugh, you will cry and best of all... you will THINK!!" - Leslie Jordan, Will & Grace; American Horror Story
"A poignant, incisive and unflinching exploration of a young man's journey toward self-acceptance in the face of loss. Through the story of a bitter southern dreamer and hustler adrift in New York, Leslie L. Smith writes with candor and compassion of a generation grappling with desire, disease and the hope for social change." - Robert J. Hughes, author of "Late and Soon"
"Leslie Smith has written a hell of a book. It's a roller coaster of a ride full of sex, sadness, loss and humor. It's a punch in the gut, a wake-up call and a confessional inspiration all in one. You will have a hard time putting this book down!" - Julie Halston, actress and comedienne
"Leslie L. Smith gives us a wide-ranging novel of sex and spirit, evoking a New York riven by AIDS and torn by a regretful past and uncertain future." - Stephen Greco, author of "Now and Yesterday"
