"Freddy's dance card is filled with partners who twirl him around, step on his toes, and sometimes break his heart. In "Family Album," a six-year-old Freddy unknowingly unearths the source of his mother's hidden despair; twenty years later, she reaches through her drunken haze to comfort her son against the fear of AIDS. In "Cigarettes," Freddy does some dirty dancing, stealing cigarettes for the bad boy next door in exchange for lessons on lust. "Tears of Two" finds Freddy grown-up and his father grown old, revealing a tender heart beneath his father's lawyerly shell. In "Red Light" and "Life Line," Freddy takes his chances with dangerous women in order to feel more like a man."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
