Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A male writer meets, and falls self-destructively in love with, a handsome waiter in this superbly wrought novel by art critic Indiana ( Scar Tissue ). The waiter, Gregory, is a talented photographer who's recovering from some of his many addictions--heroin among them. At the same time, the writer is trying to get a grip on his life and work in an era of ``gay cancer.'' While the theme is familiar, the offhand detail and the frequently brilliant turns of phrase that inform this portrait of an exotic relationship contribute to a compelling narrative. Ordinary life in lower Manhattan is depicted with spare but razor-sharp clarity. Equally spare, however, is the nod toward the terror of AIDS; but the verisimilitude of that knowing nod yields compassion where a trenchant or self-pitying approach would have elicited distance (at the very least) in the non-gay reader. But most important is Indiana's portrayal of a human relationship--a portrait whose sincerity and depth makes it a well-polished gem. (May)
Library Journal
Set in the gay artistic subculture of New York's East Village, art critic Indiana's first novel is a story of romantic obsession in the age of AIDS. The unnamed narrator, a 35-year-old writer for a cultural newsweekly, is suddenly infatuated with Gregory, a handsome and emotionally disturbed photographer he meets in a bookstore. Despite misgivings about the nature of his attraction and fear of AIDS, he risks involvement. The result is an increasingly destructive emotional entanglement, a relationship in which the narrator becomes a victim of both the romantic fantasies he projects on Gregory and the younger man's manipulative behavior. While interesting as a study of obsession, the novel falls short when Indiana makes the dramatic situation double as social commentary.-- Lawrence Rungren, Bedford Free P.L., Mass.
