Today the MLR Press free book is Last Stop USA by Johnny Miles. Here’s the blurb:
It’s a week after the bombing of Pearl Harbor and there’s more than fear in the air. An uncertainty about the future lingers. Still, life must go on and so does the music. Kevin Hardy plays his first gig at a USO dance where he meets white, redheaded sailor Peyton Fitzgerald. The black saxophonist takes an instant liking to him but does the seaman feel the same? Once Peyton admits it’s his last night in the U.S., Kevin dares to dream, takes a gamble, and invites Peyton over for a few hours of passion before shipping off to Europe.
