Onyx (eBook, ePUB)
5,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Ray Henriques has Success, Love, Friendship ... but lately it's not enough. Yet it's not just Ray who is on a quest for deeper meaning. For Jesse, Ray's lover of ten years, it is a quest accelerated by his imminent death from AIDS. And for young married father of two Mike Tedesco, it is a search for the heart of masculinity. The sexual exploration which begins when Ray and Mike meet awakens a restlessness in both men, which resoundingly alters their future paths. As Ray's life begins to draw him increasingly into the future, a future without Jesse, he attempts to tether himself to the here and now with frequent visits to a past where life's answers seemed simpler and more meaningful. But when Jesse's fundamentalist Christian mother rolls into town to take charge of her son's final weeks, he is yanked from his reverie to face an opponent unlike any he has ever known. Marked by shifting points of view, humor, descriptive brilliance and unexpected revelation, Onyx is a multifaceted exploration of inner lives, motivation, love, and the sometimes hollow center beneath a polished surface.First published to acclaim in 2001, this new 2019 edition features a new foreword by the author.About Felice Picano:A five-time Lambda Literary Award nominee, Felice Picano's books include the best-selling novels Like People in History and The Book of Lies.

This, ultimately, is the measure of Picano's genius." - Greg Herren, Lambda Literary Book Report"Picano's Onyx enhance[s] his reputation as a major chronicler of gay life and culture" - Publisher's Weekly
