(From the publisher):
Mr. Locke has never written a more delightful story; his
is the only thing that an be compared with it.
The Fortunate Youth has the magic of pure romance and the dramatic qualities that are a part of life's experiences when a man rises to great heights from poverty, oppression and mystery. Mr. Locke depicts a new sort of vagabond -- Paul, a slum child whose only fortune is his extraordinary physical beauty. This beauty helps Paul to win his way up-ward in the social scale, and on his path he passes through various strata of Bohemia -- the caravan, the studio and the stage -- to the fulfilment of his splendid destiny.
