Overview

BOOTLEG LOVE. The Jazz Age. Mack Daly is a charming wheeler-dealer. Joe Imperio is a street-smart hustler. They meet against the glamorous backdrop of Manhattan in the era of Prohibition, where there are speakeasies on every corner and danger lurking at every turn. When Mack s marriage of convenience to the beautiful Ynez starts to crumble, and with the government hot on the trail of his illegal bootlegging activities, Mack s world explodes in an orgy of decadence, unparalleled greed...and murder. He turns to his friends for help Eliot Armstrong, a shell-shocked World War I veteran, and his lesbian sister, Nolie. Soon Mack and Joe are ensnared in a diabolical scheme that threatens to expose their illicit love and bring ruin to them all. Based on a true story, Heyday takes us inside the little-known gay subculture of the Lost Generation, where a forbidden passion grows into undying love.

From The Critics
The most exciting book about New York in the 1920s to be written in years! Not simply a novel about the swanky, secret underside of old Broadway, but real literature—heart stopping and soul stirring above the rest!
