The danger and allure of prostitution for boys

Described as the author's "journey from prostitution to love", this memoir continues the story of Richie McMullen, recounted in Enchanted Boy, from the moment in November 1958, just after his fifteenth birthday, when he boarded a train in his native Liverpool in order to seek his fortune as a rent boy in London's Piccadilly Circus.

Enchanted Boy was good, but this is much better, Richie clearly having found his wings as a writer. There is more humour

Un libro que me ha encantado, tiene unas frases absolutamente especiales, y aborda el tema de la prostitución de una manera cruda, sin tapujos.
El poeta como así lo llaman, sale de una familia desestructurada para adentrase en los fondos de la prostitucion, que conlleva demasiados peligros.

" la vida de un chapero es una obra multicolor, un tapiz, pero lamentablemente hay muchos tejedores, y solo un chico "
Muy recomendable

I liked this sequel better than Enchanted Boy. Richie runs away from Liverpool, headed for Picadilly Circus, where he can make money as a rent boy. On the train he falls in love with an upper class boy, and the book is the story of Richie's attempts to find this boy again while working as a rent boy in London.

Very well-written and moving. Probably not easy to find.
