About this title

Synopsis:

Robert Taylor, the author of All We Have is Now and Whose Eye is on Which Sparrow?, brings you a complex, moving novel of love and life. A Few Hints and Clews traces the pasts of two men-from their parents' lives through the historic events of the 20th century—reliving the experience of being gay in America during those years. The novel travels through the confusion of the 1940s and 50s to the Stonewall Revolution through the horror of AIDS and beyond, ultimately emerging as a warm, loving, and hopeful celebration of the courage it takes to throw off fear and uncertainty and live proudly as an openly gay couple.

Review:

Growing-up-and-coming-out novels are now numerous in American literature. But Robert Taylor does the unusual with this kind of story--like every good Southern writer, he DEFTLY WEAVES A RICH TEXTURE OF MANY GENERATIONS of family sun and shadow, joy and pain, along with family religious belief, into what would have been a simple love story and long-time relationship between two men. -- Patricia Nell Warren, Author of bestselling novels The Front Runner, Harlan's Race, The Wild Man and other books

Novels telling the story of the woven lives of two gay men over several decades were once fairly rare, a situation which the diversification of gay and lesbian writing since 1969 has rectified in a variety of voices. -- Robert B. Ridinger, Northern Illinois University, editor of Speaking for Our Lives: Historic Speeches and Rhetoric for Gay and Lesbian Rights (1892-2000)

Robert Taylor SUCCEEDS YET AGAIN in enchanting readers with the power of romance. The author illustrates Adam and Tony's committed relationship through all of its challenges as well as its triumphs, weaving past and present into a compelling narrative. -- Teresa Theophano, author of Queer Quotes
