Morehead, the audiobook by Jeffrey Hickey, stars Joseph Rende as Dave Morehead and all the men in Chapter 2, Lauren Pizzi as almost all the women, and Jeffrey Hickey as everyone else.
Morehead is an explicitly adult novel about Dave Morehead, a young man living in San Francisco during the height of the sexual revolution, in the late 1970s to mid-1980s. It was a time of sexual, evolutionary, and political change, with both glorious and nearly catastrophic consequences. San Francisco was teeming with diversity, and an evolving political base that forever changed the landscape of what had always been a progressive city. Harvey Milk, Halloween in the Castro, college classes where heterosexuals are in the minority, the first Gay Games, and spiritual cults comprise just part of the terrain Dave must traverse in order to get from where he was, to what he will become.
Along the way, he is challenged, assaulted, and forced to defend himself, while relying on an expanding and surprising variety of friends. At the same time, a mysterious "gay cancer" is beginning to afflict some of his new friends and the community at large. Dave has to grow up, and he has to make choices. Will he be there for his friends, or will he let them go? Morehead is a coming of age story in the first person. It is told from the perspective of journals, classroom assignments, and transcribed audio recordings. Morehead, the second novel by Jeffrey Hickey, comically, bluntly, graphically, and poignantly tells the tale of a straight young man living in a gay old city.
Morehead was recorded and mostly mixed at Der Zoo by Jeffrey Hickey. The remainder of mixing and mastering was done by Robin Livingston.
