Summary: They were always friends and something more. Jonathan - talented, sensitive, and lonely. Bobby - hip, dark, and inarticulate. They grew up together in the suburbs of Cleveland, fashioning from shared experience a bond strong enough to overcome their troubled homes and turbulent adolescent. When Jonathan leaves for New York City, Bobby is left to drift - until at last he joins Jonathan again in yet another unconventional alliance with Jonathan's new roommate, Clare. Clare is a veteran of New York's erotic wars looking for a cease-fire. She thinks she's found it in Jonathan. They are soul mates in every realm, but there's still one thing he cannot give her. Soon Clare and Bobby become lovers, and when she becomes pregnant, all three embark on a dating voyage through the uncharted terrain of the heart toward a new vision of what a family can be. In this evocative, deeply felt, and highly acclaimed novel Michael Cunningham illuminates with startling the frontiers of love, family, and commitment. [back]
