Description

THE SOUTH IN SONG AND STORY Sweet Wine of Youth is a tale of romance set in Alabama and New Orleans, with the fuss and furor of the sixties, and, as backdrop, a rampant cry for black equality. Hero (or anti-hero) Bo Lander Halston finds the love of his life in neighborhood charmer, Josie Lee Childers, and she in him-though not entirely in him, and after she moves off to New Orleans as a student at Tulane University, with him soon to follow as an up-and-coming reporter for the Times-Picayune. At a climactic moment she falls in with a luscious New Orleans stripper, with Bo as the go-between-a satisfactory arrangement till he gives way to a furious jealously and returns to his other young love, a basketballer and Miss Everything named Alva Gray Littleton, who promises him devotion and lasting contentment amid the strife and turmoil of an uncertain world.show more
