STUCK RUBBER BABY by Howard Cruse will be re-issued in 2010 with a new introduction by Alison Bechdel creator of Fun Home. In this award-winning tale of prejudice and hatred, a young white man deals with his acceptance of his homosexuality as he fights for the civil rights of African Americans during the 1960s. A poignant and realistic look into the darkness of bigotry, STUCK RUBBER BABY is a thought-provoking coming-of-age tale told during one of America's most socially troubled eras.
