How I Paid for College by Marc Acito
Over the course of the story, Edward and his friends explore their sexual feelings for each other and make several outings to a gay bar in Greenwich Village; bisexuality is a major theme. Two of their hare-brained money-making schemes involve incriminating blackmail photos and Edward's friend's enormous penis. Being reasonably certain that Wallingford was not the ideal place to develop the film, Edward takes it to a shop in the Village called Toto Photo. (Which reminds me, I saw Judy Garland's dress from The Wizard of Oz hanging in the window of the Stonewall Inn. I love New York.) It all ends happily... with only one short stint in jail.
