(From the publisher):
Part screwball comedy, part (screwball) tragedy—a brilliantly original novel about love and marriage, gay and straight, in the age of AIDS. At the center, Hector Diaz—seen everywhere around New York, glamorous, in the know, streetwise. He is also HIV-positive and in clinical trials.
His two closest friends, Susan and Bill, have lived a seemingly idyllic marriage and have vowed to care for Hector until the end. But suddenly the marriage is breaking apart—and Hector, while coping with his own insidious nightmare, has placed himself smack in the middle of theirs.
We watch as Hector is pulled into the twister of his friends' trendy but collapsing life, and is tossed and whirled along its crazy itinerary—from Bill's support group (for straight philanderers) to an intime holiday in the Caribbean, just the three of them. As the novel, moving toward reconciliation, culminates in a pastoral extravaganza—a country wedding in which two grooms in sky blue promise to love, honor, and cherish—Hector moves from fear through revelation to acceptance of his approaching death.
