Reviewed by Kathryn Bennett for Readers' Favorite

Longbranch by Craig Pittman introduces us to a young man named Shawn who is drawn to the Tiger Lady. She thinks he is smart and is attracted to his sexual side. She brings him to her own estate to live and he falls for her completely; he is hers to control. Women’s liberation is all over the front pages of the papers and one boy could be forever morphed.

This book was a very different and interesting read for me. The format was unique and I enjoyed the inner monologue of Shawn and following him on his journey in the 1960’s. It is not often you get the point of view of a male prostitute especially one as young as Shawn. All the twists his life takes and the awakenings and things he learns kept me very interested.

I enjoyed this book from the moment I picked it up until the moment I finished it. This is not for the faint of heart, however it is a beautifully written book with layers and a story that you wont forget. I am going to read it again just to make sure that I didn’t miss anything. I give a well done applaud to author Craig Pittman on a beautifully written story of a side of life we rarely see.
