This is a love story, sort of. This is a story about a young lad's awkening to the perils of puberty. This is a story of a young man with an extrordinarily large penis.
This is a story about a young girls awakening to her first sexual encounter with jealousy... No, dammit, it's all of the above! And told by a master of the genre. (I've been trying to use that word for months since I read it in the newspaper.)
Mark Hawthorne is the elongated owner of the schlong, and Betsy Lou Krupke is his first love. They are neighbours in a lower middle class neighbourhood, and it is a well written tale which I thoroughly enjoyed.
I feel that this is not a stroke story, so did not mark it as such.
