Summary
"This is the fantastic tale of Raymond Richards, self-styled ex-star of a 'gay' night club in San Francisco, presently in Greenwich Village, where he is in the female-impersonator racket in a clip joint. But it won't be for long. Raymond has other ideas, so many that you'll find it hard to keep up with him...We follow Raymond into the half-world of crackpots and queers and others, the world of mixed up sexes, including the third sex, and the hardcore cases that make up certain aspects of life in the Village, and uptown. We see him doped and rolled by a boy friend, and we glimpse, with him, what sets queer people adrift, 'contrary to the direction of respectability, westward toward the darkness and oblivion of the setting sun - West of the Wind.' A strange, fascinating tale, a curious mixture of realism and fantasy, is this, with an anti-hero whose ultimate fate comes startlingly to a climax which some might have predicted, but never did" -- Dust jacket flaps
