Forgery of the Month Club by Keith L.T. Alexander
Keith is an African-American Jewish boy growing up in 1960s Chicago in a white community. Along with his sister, Lin, he spends much of his time under the watch of their mother’s closest friends: a band of carefree homosexuals who wished to disassociate themselves from the pains of society. Keith’s “aunts” and “uncles” as he affectionately called them cared for him like family and filled a void in Keith’s underdeveloped support system while his mother was out stealing and his father was not around.
