John Lazoo, by John Reyer Afamasaga

By John Reyer Afamasaga. Issues revolving around personal identity are sandwiched between fiction and reality in Afamasaga’s emotional-techno fiction-based story about a man’s search for his soul mate. James Elton, locked up since the age of nine, is free at last and heads for NYC aboard a Greyhound bus. In New York he meets Hariss Clariss, a wealthy man who is immediately infatuated by the likeable person he sees. John Lazoo is a cold-hearted gigolo, a name James takes from a book his mother Janine read to him when she was alive and he was a boy.
