DeShawn lives a high, creative, and promiscuous life in San Francisco. But when he's called back to his cramped Southern hometown for his uncle's funeral, he s hit by flashbacks of handsome, doomed neighbors and sweltering Sunday services. Amidst prickly reminders of his childhood, DeShawn ponders family, church, and the men in his life, prompting the question: Who deserves love? A raw, funny, and uninhibited stumble down memory lane, Purnell's debut novel explores how one man's early sexual and artistic escapades grow into a life.
