Overview

Palace of Varieties by James Lear

This extremely graphic novel brims with male sex from the sordid to the sublime, in every position, place, and variety. Watch and enjoy as Paul Lemoyne leaves his humble home to begin a new life as a music hall stagehand, but soon discovers there are richer pickings to be had from the stage-door johnnies who haunt the Palace of Varieties Music Hall. And thus ensues our rake's progress from low-life prostitution to the salons and studios of Mayfair, from the bath-houses of Bermondsey to the rarefied circles of modern art. All the while behind each of Paul's outrageous sexual adventures lurks the mysterious figure of Albert Abbott, his lover, corrupter, and Svengali.

A tepid, not very original, "autobiography" of an English "rent boy" during the 1930s. A rather silly rendition of the emptiness of a life based on sex for sale. I obviously didn't think before I bought. If you really think you are interested in this book, my copy will be at the used book store soon.
