HOMEBOY, Seth Morgan's stunning novel, is a gritty, ribald, and frenetically lyrical odyssey through the Strip in San Francisco -a netherworld of whores, pimps, dealers, and junkies - to the hell of Coldwater Penitentiary. After a high-priced hooker is killed and one of the world's biggest diamonds is stolen, Joe Speaker, a strip-joint barker and dope addict, stumbles onto the missing jewel, is hunted down and put away for the murder. In prison, he finds that his troubles are just beginning.
