Ken, an eighteen year old boy who has never spent a night away from home, accepts a job as a lifeguard in a Catskill Mountain, Borscht Belt, resort. The area has changed from a summer getaway for Eastern European Jews, to a "leave-your-inhibitions-at-home contemporary resort." At home at Brooklyn College, Ken is too young to drive, and younger than the coeds he'd like to date. At the Gibbers resort in the Catskills, Ken who looks nineteen plus, becomes the unwitting prey, and the willing predator, in a series of highly erotic yet sensitive sexual encounters. The reader becomes a voyeur, looking over Ken's shoulder as he evolves from embarrassed virgin to confident teacher. Each weekend when Ken heads north from Brooklyn to Kiamesha Lake NY., a new and different scenario awaits him. Women ages eighteen to thirty seven, liberated by the uninhibiting surroundings of a resort environment, make their contribution to Ken's coming of age. Feelings of love, lust, insecurity, loneliness, sexual responsibility, friendship, and maturation are explored with insight and sensitivity. The reader is aroused, entertained and informed as Ken comes down off the trapeze and appreciates sex as a beautiful element in a meaningful relationship.
