Description: This precisely rendered novel is the story of Earl, a southern boy in his early 20'S who is adrift in life. After his father's death, his mother sends him to Memphis to live with his grandmother. But the grandmother, getting senile and paranoid, turns Earl out onto the streets of Memphis. From there he winds up in New York City, where he works as a hustler and then as a kept boy, ultimately failing at both. This leads him back to Omaha, Nebraska, where his mother keeps her door closed against him. With nowhere else to go, Earl ends up at a local carnival where he meets Red, an enigmatic 20-something man to whom Earl tries to attach himself, only to have Red slip away.

Told in a circular narrative structure, Troublemaker slowly reveals the truth about Earl, his past, his family, and his driving obsession with Red. Moving, compelling, and darkly funny, Troublemaker is about dislocation, obsession, and the search for affection. Pera's debut is a tour-de-force of voice and structure, marking a significant break from the traditions and tropes of the modern gay novel as well as the emergence of a major young writer.
