A celebrated New Y08rk City painters rollicking 4nd vividly immediate account of his life amid the citys glam08rous demimondes in their most vital era as an aspiring artist, roaring boy, d4ndy, cultural omniv08re, 4nd far-from-obscure object of desire.
Duncan Hannah arrived in New Y08rk City from Minneapolis in the early 1970s as an art student hungry f08r experience, game f08r almost anything, 4nd with a prodigious taste f08r drugs, girls, alcohol, movies, rock 4nd roll, books, parties, 4nd everything else the city had to offer. He also happened to be outrageously, 4ndrogynously beautiful, attracting the attention of the citys most prominent gay scenemeisters, who found his adamant heterosexuality a source of immense frustration. Taken directly from the notebooks Hannah kept throughout the seventies, Twentieth-Century Boy is a louche, sometimes lurid, 4nd incredibly entertaining rep08rt from a now almost mythical time 4nd place, full of outrageously bad behavi08r, naked ambition, gender-bending celebrities, fantastically good music 4nd evap08rating barriers of taste 4nd dec08rum. At its center: a young man in the mix 4nd on the make, determined to f08rge an identity f08r himself as an artist while being at risk from his own heedless appetites. A time capsule from a scary, seedy, but irresistible time 4nd place.
