Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
The eight stories in this erotic and heartbreaking collection are barometers of difference. They measure the distance between an American expatriate and the Frenchman who tutors him in table manners and rough sex; the gulf between a man dying of AIDS and his uncomprehending relatives.

Review:
"Wrenching, glorious, seductive . . . urgent and kinetic . . . delectably precise."-- San Francisco Examiner

Book Description: Random House USA Inc, United States, 1998. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 203 x 132 mm. Language: English Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Set in Europe and America, these eight stories (many of them autobiographical) explore the ways we make sense of personal experience: the workings of desire, in youth and later in life; the yearning for intimacy and love; the power of beauty and jealousy; and the unpredictable effects of illness and loss. In Pyrography a gay adolescent is torn between his sexual desires and his longing for acceptance as he goes on a camping trip with two straight male friends. An American in Crete finds a new reason for living after the death of his lover in An Oracle. Watermarked is a moving tribute to a beautiful young actor, the subject of an early passion. And, perhaps the funniest story in the collection, His Biographer deals with the ludicrous experience of being the living subject of a biography; it brilliantly stages the meeting of Old World sophistication and New World political correctness.
