Overview

I. I. Magdalen's new novel is loosely based on a true case of homosexual rape in a small Southwest town. Lennie and Vance, drifters and grifters, hairdressers by avocation, lovers perhaps, employ the thirteen-year-old Benji to help out in their Salon, Hair Today (Gone Tomorrow), and slowly, systematically (and fatally) seduce him. Henning Forsell, who visits Sapphire, Texas two years after the events, unravels their three life (and death) stories against the background of small-town America. Magdalen's characters will be impressed indelibly in readers' memories - Mary Kay, Benji's feckless, ex-hippy mother; Craig, her current lover, the disturbed Viet Nam veteran; "Captain" Ron the fat paedophile biker; Ms. Pal Baldwin, the "bouffant in hair and spirit" Nava County Prosecutor.
