About this title

Synopsis:

Recounts the author's relationship with his older brother, their experiences of growing up gay in a Christian Science family, and his painful witness to his brother's illness and death from AIDS. Tour.

From the Back Cover:

"Out of love, anger, and grief Clifford Chase has crafted a moving memoir of loss and family bonds. With startling intensity, he evokes scenes of life in a suburban American family and illuminates the strong ties that are woven between two gay brothers as they become adults. Chase documents how, in turn, the family dynamics change forever when one brother - the elder, the admired, the feared, the loved - grows ill and dies. This is a searching, unsentimental account of how AIDS steals away loved ones and how the wounds of loss come to be healed."--BOOK JACKET.
