Toby's Lie

by Daniel Vilmure
£7.99   paperback  Bloomsbury (1995)

Toby A powerful, tender story of a young man's perilous waltz into a world where nothing is what it seems. Toby Sligh is a senior at a Jesuit high school in Tampa who wants only to dance with his boyfriend at the prom. This is the least of his worries - as he finds himself tangled in a web of half truths. Toby's mother has just moved out of the house and made him promise not to tell his father where she is. Juice, Toby's best friend, is - or appears to be - a spectacular crack dealer, dragging Toby into trouble with both sides of the law. And Ian, Toby's boyfriend, brings him to the bedside of Fr. Eli Scarcross, a gaunt AIDS-ravaged Jesuit priest, who embodies what happens when love and lies collide. Ian offers Toby a deal: if Toby will befriend Scarcross, Ian will get to the bottom of Mrs. Sligh's flight. Through Scarcross, Toby learns the truth about life, about love, about himself, and about the world - where everybody has a secret to hide, a trust to betray, and a story to tell. 'Toby's Lie' is a stunning and explosive literary achievement.
