Summary
A rocky tale that explores the complicated relationship between a young gay hustler and an ageing drag queen, set in the intriguing and lost world of 80s porn stars. This is not erotica, but a surprising, genre-bending blend of dark literary fiction and delightful comedy. At turns funny, sexy, and heartrending, The End of Billy Knight goes beyond the obvious stereotypes to portray two deeply sympathetic characters, both lost in their search for meaning, fulfillment and love. Mike makes his money in the streets and bars of Cincinnati. When a trick goes wrong one night, he decides to change his life. Dale is an ageing drag queen who spends most of his life performing as the fabulous Sasha Zahore. She's the star attraction at the Lucky Pony, a rundown bar in Los Angeles. But Sasha has a dream. She longs to break into the emerging gay porn industry and direct high quality films. “Porn so good it'll make even your mama proud.” The night Mike and Sasha meet, their lives become connected and their dreams intertwine. Very quickly Sasha becomes determined to make Mike hers - in more ways than one. But when nobody believes a drag queen can direct gay porn, and when Mike doesn't return Sasha's feelings in precisely the way she'd hoped, how far will she go to get what she wants?
