The haunting, bitter story of love born in a slum… of music bred in a brothel
Hate was their only heritage!
Alabama Boy In Harlem
From the back:
From the Fields of Alabama to the Jungles of Harlem
Jule was a country boy—shy, unsophisticated, quiet-spoken. But when a white man took his girl he exploded into violence. And then he had to flee for his life—far from Alabama, far from the South, into the neon-lit anonymity of Harlem.
Like so many country boys before him, Jule was dazzled by his new surroundings. He found himself caught up in the fast crowds and the fast life—and soon he was a plaything for the pleasure-bent women who sought his hard body and his hard caresses.
Here is a dynamite-packed story of a young man’s struggle to preserve his self-respect among the wiles and temptations of the big city.
