GLOVE PUPPET is a love story, an erotic gay novel, a confronting, sordid tale of chance, sex and manipulation. The narrator is Johnny/Vaslav, a world weary twenty year old who's seen more and done more than most boys his age. Raised by his drug addicted prostitute mother, Johnny knows only drugs and paid sex, violence and destitution. The seeds of his badness are planted in this urban English childhood. The death of his mother and a chance encounter with a stranger bring Johnny to Sydney where he becomes Vaslav, son of a prominent dancer and gay activist. But the fairytale turns awry as Johnny resfuses to be laid to rest and a forbidden love affair begins and ends - with tragic consequences.
