Overview

With the Beauty of Men comes Holleran's third novel, a brilliant, passionate, lyrical story of a man ashamed to be mourning the loss of his own youth as so many around him die young. Andrew Holleran follows Lark, the main character, on a series of trips to a Florida nursing home to care for his mother and on excursions to a local boat ramp, the gym, and the baths - all the while introducing a remarkable cast of characters both in the present and in Lark's memory of his life in Manhattan. A universal tale of loneliness, aging, and the obsessive desires of the human heart, The Beauty of Men is both moving and full of dark humor, bleak but erotic.
