Naked Hero - The Journey Away
(J. K. Brighton)
‘Naked Hero’ is the story of Lewis Macleod’s search for the elusive perfect man as he battles with the adversities of life. Told in two parts, the first ‘The Journey Away’ is set in Melbourne and Sydney during the Australian Open tennis tournament where Lewis is competing as the only openly gay man in the sport.
Eighteen months after claiming the Wimbledon title at the tender age of 21, Lewis’s life has spiralled out of control: his career in decline and his love life a mess. With the tennis establishment against him and the tabloids scenting blood, Lewis’s motivation is at an all time low. But two men are in Australia who will turn things around.
Scott Taylor is an ex-champion who hides his bi-sexuality firmly in the closet, and was Lewis’s sporting hero as a lad. Now retired from the game, the American Idol is enlisted to help with the young Scotsman’s game, but his interest in Lewis goes way beyond tennis.
Lee Porter is an entirely different prospect: a male model who is out loud and proud. The Body Perfect Englishman is a figure of internet fantasy for our naive young hero. Lee is also a top class schemer, whose agenda regarding Lewis is complex to say the least.
Both will compete for Lewis’s affection as each in their way help him to deal with the adversities he faces. But can either live up to the ghost of his father – the perfect man in Lewis’s eyes, and the benchmark for everyone else?
Note: ‘Naked Hero – The Journey Away’ was originally released as an experimental piece of work under the title ‘Man in the Box’ and is now offered as a rewritten polished novel.
