A horny high school graduate spurned by his boyfriend, ripe for a summer adventure...a brawny young truckdriver looking for company...and a long, hot drive across the American West—these are the ingredients of the short novel Eden, a tinderbox of sexual tension that threatens to set the whole desert on fire. Together, two very different young men take a journey though a wilderness of desire. The discoveries they make will startle them both.
Written early in the career of Aaron Travis, Eden remains one of its author’s personal favorites, a wildcard among his more radical, hardcore visions. Too sharply observed and realistic to be dismissed as porn, too raunchy and hard-headed to be called a romance, Eden is in a class by itself.
Eden bears out the judgment of Sam Steward, the Dean of Gay Erotica, who said that “Aaron Travis writes with a golden pen.”
