Description
Johnny grew up in lower-class London with a mother who was both a prostitute and a drug addict. All he has known in his short life is that there may or may not be food to eat, that his mother had to have "visitors, " and that school was an intermittent place.

When his mother dies of an overdose, seven-year-old Johnny is befriended by a handsome stranger, Shamash, who saw the incident unfold. Before the police can inquire, Shamash has comforted the boy and, with the complicity of the orphaned Johnny, whisked him back to Australia, in the place of Shamash's own, recently deceased, son. Johnny, now become "Vaslav, " settles into a comfortable life as the son of a prominent gay man -- well known in gay and arts circles alike. Well-loved and taken care of by his new family, Vaslav thinks his past is gone forever.

But as he becomes a teenager, Vaslav begins to realize that "Johnny" is still there, deep within him, Vaslav initiates a forbidden love affair, one that threatens to destroy him and all whom he knows and loves.

Glove Puppet is an arresting novel in which love and transgression, sex and manipulation collapse upon each other -- where the best intentions can yield the worst consequences.
