Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In a witty, angry and anguished novel, set in an almost-real contemporary New York City, Kate and Molly are having an affair. Kate, an artist, still loves husband Peter and wants the two parts of her love life to somehow peacefully coexist. They won't--Peter feels jealous; Molly, neglected. The triangle is played out as AIDS kills hundreds; homelessness and hunger are as ubiquitous as Ronald Horne, a cold-blooded, homophobic real-estate mogul with political aspirations. At the end of their ropes, the AIDS activists who constitute the group Justice decide that they've got nothing to lose. Molly first, then Kate, become involved in Justice's inventive schemes of civil disobedience. At times lapsing into melodrama, Schulman ( After Delores ) carefully balances the story lines, using Kate's own sexual awareness and awakening as a benchmark for the situation of the besieged homosexual community.

From Library Journal

AIDS is a metaphor for "the beginning of the end of the world" in this dark gay-lesbian novel about Kate, a married artist dabbling in lesbian sex, Molly, her lesbian/activist lover, and Peter, Kate's Yuppie scene designer husband, who is confused by not only his wife's increasing interest in the gay world, but by the increasing gayness of the world itself. They play out their story in a futuristic New York City, where a radical gay group robs banks to help AIDS patients. Though Schulman has talent, the sophisticated, New York flavor of the book and the often inaccessibility of the characters leave little for many readers to identify with, and the graphic gay sex scenes may be offensive to conservative audiences. Nevertheless, Schulman creates a disturbing picture of the plight of humanity and our seeming indifference, a theme which cuts across strictly gay borders. For larger collections with demand for gay/lesbian literature.
