About this title


“A remarkable debut novel . . . detailed insights and dead-on characterizations . . . a strong gay sensibility in the book, including the often hilarious and biting dialogue among the older characters. Enjoy the insightful story for its vivid characters, unfolding love story and powerful descriptions of a time gone by.”—Washington Blade

“I’m much impressed. The insight into older people, especially women, is precious and rare. I’m astonished at the understanding. Every syllable is believable. It says it all . . .”—Bernice Rubens
