"People tell me in 10 years I will be in the gutter.  I'm almost looking forward to the prospect," Jimmy writes to his friend Howard in 1948. Jimmy is eighteen, gay, dishonorably discharged from the Marines, and living in New York.  Documenting his artist's life, Jimmy cruises the bars and streets, parties with his friends Gore Vidal, Anais Nin, and Truman Capote, while rhapsodizing on art, love, and sexuality.  Sixty years later, monologist David Kodeski wins a "curious box of letters" in an online auction and discovers Jimmy's lost world.

THE SUITCASE OPERA PROJECT, a new non-fiction opera by David Kodeski and composer Eric Reda, excavates Jimmy's 49 letters, revealing a history of post-Kinsey/pre-Stonewall queer America and creating a moving portrait of a hungry, young soul.
