Overview


"One of the most profound and courageous writers at work today." — Michael Cunningham (The Hours). This Stonewall Book Award-winning novel traces the life and unrealized dreams of a homosexual African-American poet. Beautifully written in reverse chronological order, the story opens with Arnold Hawley's lonely old age, revisits his ill-fated marriage, and concludes with his arrival in New York City, where he forms a lasting bond with his formidable aunt.
