Fleeing his father, fourteen-year-old Radboy takes to the road with Jonnyboy, an older friend and the only person he trusts. On the bus headed out of town they hook up with Finn and Critter, speed-freak boyfriends who take a shine to both of them. They also meet Ula, who is mourning the death of her fiance and taking a trip across the country in his memory. The five become fast allies, united by loss and by the allure of intimacy. When Jonnyboy drops out of sight, Radboy stays behind in San Francisco, where the underground world inspires his own burgeoning sexual and emotional desires. 'Cult classic ...A frantic rush of images as deaf-mute Radboy speeds through San Fran, hangs with his friends and falls in LOVE ...The glorious rush of the words will blow you away' Elle 'It's rare to be moved by something as apparently hip and accessible as War Boy, but that's the way art works' Washington Post
