5.0 out of 5 stars packed with the stuff of life, 9 Nov. 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Where the Rainbow Ends (Hardcover)
Currier is an accomplished short story writer, and it shows in this first novel; the reader repeatedly has a sense of closure, only to experience delighted relief that this is indeed long fiction and the more is to come. Packed with the stuff of life, this rewarding work might be termed a "gay immigrant" novel, a saga about men and women who leave their hometown and families, move to the big cities, and fashion new lives in an alien land. Currier (Dancing on the Moon: Short Stories About AIDS, Viking, 1993) takes his characters from the late 1960s, through the hedonistic 1970s, and into the AIDS-riddled 1980s and politically charged 1990s. Their stores are ones of profound loss -- of biological families, of friends, and of intimate relationships. It's little wonder that Currier draws clear parallels to the story of Job -- the underlying question is one of faith that, on the other side of pain, there is meaning after all. Recommended for public and academic libraries. Roger W. Durbin, University of Akron Library, Ohio Library Journal. October 15, 1998
