Chicken free pdf "I walk all the way up Hollywood Boulevard to Grauman's Chinese Theatre: past tourists snapping shots- wannabe starlets sparkling by in miniskirts with head shots in their hands and moondust in their eyes- rowdy cowboys drinking with drunken Indians- black businessmen bustling by briskly in crisp suits- ladies who do not lunch with nylons rolled up below the knee pushing shopping carts full of everything they own- Mustangs rubbing up against muscular Mercedes and Hell's Angels hogs.
It's a sick twisted Wonderland, and I'm Alice."
Here is a story like no other: The unforgettable chronicle of a season spent walking the razor-sharp line between painful innocence and the allure of the abyss. David Sterry was a wide-eyed son of 1970s suburbia, but within his first week looking for off-campus housing on Sunset Boulevard he was lured into a much darker world -- servicing the lonely women of Hollywood by night.
"Chicken"--the word is slang for a young male prostitute--revisits this year of living dangerously, in a narrative of dazzling inventiveness and searing candor. Shifting back and forth from tales of Sterry's youth--spent in the awkward bosom of a disintegrating dysfunctional family--to his fascinating account of the Neverland of post--sixties sexual excess, Chicken teems with Felliniesque characters and set pieces worthy of Dionysus. And when the life finally overwhelms Sterry, his retreat from the profession will leave an indelible mark on readers' minds and hearts.
