Description

Eddie Golden is a novel that focuses on the human condition, survival, excelling from where one is, and redemption. It is an odyssey in the life of the main character, Eddie Golden. It spans the life of Eddie Golden from adolescence and growing up as a product of a broken home, to success in his latter years as a thirty-something professional at the top of his industry. At thirteen years of age and throughout his teens, Eddie Golden experiences the heartaches and difficulties of growing up - his mother leaves home, peer pressure in school, feeling ugly and odd, juvenile delinquency, lost love from a girl. At sixteen years of age, Eddie claims homosexuality. He explores his sexuality in the seediest of places. He encounters many men and immerses into a life of decadence and debauchery. Eddie is lonely. After an experience of deception gone awry, Eddie sinks into deep depression and self-loathing. He isolates himself and becomes withdrawn. Soon to be eighteen years of age, Eddie meets a girl. He makes friends with people who take him from the depths of despair to the helm of hope. At eighteen, Eddie moves to California. He encounters the supernatural, dips in and out of depression, experiences the drug "Ecstasy," becomes homeless, and tries his talents at exotic dancing. Falling to rock bottom, Eddie decides to return home. While traveling from the West Coast to the East Coast, he entertains the company of two men. At nineteen years of age and home with his father, Eddie becomes rebellious and withdrawn. He is only able to contact the girl whom he had met and grown akin to; she is a lesbian. Eddie, once again, moves away from home. He faces many obstacles. He has no money. He becomeshomeless. While sleeping outdoors in the snow, he almost freezes to death. He seeks refuge in a church and is molested by a priest. After fleeing the church, Eddie runs to a train station. He finds a wallet full of money. He buys a one-way ticket to New York. He
