“Author Eldot explores the daily activities of scout camp and the politics of sex between teenage boys. The author focuses mostly on the gay characters and Julian’s sexual thoughts, but this is not really gay erotica… it is intelligent, moving, well-grounded and memorable.”

Synopsis

An adventure about boys . . . Eldot presents a fresh new novel for adults. The coming of age story is embedded in anepisodic two-week summer camp full of variety and fun. Julian kept two scrapbooks. This special onehas not been shared until now. It responds tothe nostalgic pull; the happy days of youthare special. Perhaps you'd like to relivesome memories, or discover ones that weremissed. This is a peek at the world of 1963, before the Internet and cell phones-whenyou learned by discovering things on yourown and interacted with real people. Did you miss the chance to go to summer camp? This story willfill the gap. Did you go to camp but it was boring, or too short? This will makeup for that. Did you go to camp, but were too inhibited to try all those things? Here is a memory for you to cherish.Or was your camp experience fabulous and terrific? See how thisone compares!

A lot of boys frolic, experiment, and discover wonderfulthings. There are surprises, fantasies and lots of fulfilled expectations. Julian's Private Scrapbook is meant for mature readers; the purpose is tolook at underlying present day social issues from a new perspective: thepast, and the positive.
