Tropic of Libra
Tropic of Libra by Thom Nickels
When struggling novelist Billy is left by his lover, he begins a diary whose pages soon spur him on to greater and greater sexual thrills. First he must escape from the menace of a meth-addicted Italian drug lord he allows into his home and his bed. Then Billy has a series of affairs with strangers and colourful characters that fill his diary, but leave him wanting more. He seeks advice from a humorous parade of astrologers and gypsy psychics, but love still eludes hi. His diary seems to be carrying him further into the sexual netherworld when he meets Francis, the working class Irish boy who holds an eleventh hour secret. Will Francis give Billy what he truly desires, or will he just be another entry in a diary that seems to be taking on a life of its own?
