"Forty-Deuce is sensational, but it is also an unflinching attack on the consumerist society and topsy-turvy world of American values, where a dead child is as authentic a commodity as a Madison Avenue product. Browne's most impressive achievement, however, is the richness of language he has invested in his Forty-second Street denizens - a language as textured, nuanced and poetic as the Elizabethans'." --From Back Cover

"Alan Bowne, an American playwright, is recognized for his intense and oftentimes controversial plays. Among his significant works is "Forty-Deuce", a play that vividly portrays the underworld of male prostitution in New York City. In "Forty-Deuce", Bowne employs gritty realism and raw dialogue to depict the stark realities of street life and survival at society's fringes. Despite its explicit language and themes, the play received acclaim for its unflinching representation of a seldom-seen side of urban life. "Forty-Deuce" delves into the complexities of human nature and survival under adversity, drawing from Bowne's personal experiences and observations. The play's daring and uncompromising depiction of street life underscored Bowne as a noteworthy and provocative figure in American theatre."
