Product description

Review

Stirring, spellbinding and full of life

This expansive, huge-hearted novel conveys the scale of the trauma that was the early AIDS crisis, and conveys, too, the scale of the anger and love that rose up to meet it. Makkai shows us characters who are devastated but not defeated, who remain devoted, in the face of death, to friendship and desire and joyful, irrepressible life. I loved this book

Well imagined, intricately plotted, and deeply felt, both humane and human --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
