Photo Sessions: Penn State Calendar Girls--A Novel of Scandal in Happy Valley.
Jon Michael Miller
"Photo Sessions" is a novel, a fictional version of a real case, set at Penn State University in 2002. It explores the issues of sexual innocence, middle-age madness, the legal boundaries of consent, and prosecutorial excess. It also presents the social dynamics of University professional life. T. Douglas Mullin is a university employee who out of boredom and an effort to recapture the joy of his youth, decides to develop his expertise in photography. His hobby begins a series of events that results in his expulsion from a community he holds dear.
His journey takes the reader through a series of romances and erotic encounters that realize the fantasy of many middle-age men.
The prose reflects a wry wit, an ironic point of view, an investigation of sexual attitudes and an insight into police and prosecutorial methodology. It also shows the inner workings of an area in central Pennsylvania that has become known as Happy Valley.
The novel presents these issues in one man's journey to understand the role of women in his life.
