Year-round summer person Colin Sargent, the founding editor & publisher of Portland Monthly Magazine, grew up on Gooch's Beach. A novelist, magazine publisher, and poet, Sargent's new novel The Boston Castrato is just out from Barbican Press on London, with the US release on October 1. This is not your grandmother's Christmas book: "For anyone who might have imagined 1920s Boston to be a bit stuffy and not quite the toddling town of Chicago or New York, The Boston Castrato will likely change that opinion. Bustling with snobs, intellectuals, criminals, immigrants, artists, and a definite LGBT presence, Sargent's Boston is vivid, violent, quirky, cultured, and peopled with memorable characters."–Foreword Review
