Synopsis

Living alone in his idyllic beach house, struggling artist and part-time lifeguard Alex Morgan's hurtling towards thirty. Losing faith in his talent, tired of being broke and sexually confused, he fears another year may slip by in a haze of surfing, beer, and thwarted ambition. All that changes, however, when Rick Stradman, the charming but neurotic son of a Hollywood movie producer, offers a solution to his financial problems by renting a room in his beach house. Despite initial friction during their summer share, Alex is gradually seduced by Rick's madcap world of movie stars, Bel Air mansions and, despite fighting their growing attraction, by Rick himself. Alex's beach bum singleton lifestyle being turned on its head as he acquires a surprising taste for sports cars, luxury hotels and his first experience of a relationship with another guy. Over the golden summer their secret affair grows increasingly passionate, but also increasingly complicated as the pressures of fame, family and 1970's prejudice test the strength of their love.



With a background of LA's modern art scene and Hollywood TV drama, "That Summer of '74" is an uplifting, sometimes funny, sometimes sad, story about the joy, pain and timelessness of true love, whether between friends, family or lovers.



WARNING - this book contains adult language and scenes of a sexual nature.
