Holiday Gay by Victor J. Banis

Holiday GayHoliday Gay by Victor J. Banis
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My first five star review for a C.A.M.P. book, they just keep getting better and better.

This one concerns a holiday themed scam with some crooked Santas. I was worried it would get too cutsey poo with the Christmas theme but it didn't, the gay sixties camp humour carried it all the way to the end.

This book is set in Hollywood and we learn where to pick up hustlers and what to do with them, where to take them, etc, while visiting Hollywood in 1967. Then the Christmas theme kicks in and Jackie dresses up in all sorts of fabulous disguises, leading to a gay nursing home and a new arch villain. The gay nursing home in 1967 with all the "aunties", Maude and all her friends, is priceless, loved it.

Banis has a gift for this writing that is improving with time and is writing in the perfect age for these classic pulps.
