He may have fled small-town life for addiction–first to religion and then to cocaine–but he has found his way home. Now, all that’s left is for him to face those he hurt along the way. As Simon navigates his constant internal struggle between faith and atheism, he must make decisions that will forever alter the course of his life.In this, the third book of his LGBT literary fiction series, author William Poe writes compellingly about his native Arkansas to pen a work of US historical fiction that finally includes the too-often-overlooked stories of gay and lesbian small-town Americans. Simon’s Mansion is a moving coming-of-age story about a man finally figuring out how to grow up. Watch for the next novel in the series, Simon Afterward.
