A young father struggles to shield his adopted child from the calculated, measured care of his wife. Two brothers and their wives combine feuding energies to provide an unforgettable holiday treat for the family matriarch. And a hotel manager eclipses the life of a girl captured by his beauty.

After ten years, author Jack Mauro picks up the threads of his Gay Street: Stories of Knoxville, Tennessee. The twelve tales of Beautiful Man and Other Stories open doors to the sadness, the flashes of humor, and the implacable reality of the Southern city he loves so much.
