Nights in Aruba
With the publication of "Dancer from the Dance, " one of the most critically acclaimed gay novels since Stonewall, Andrew Holleran reached the forefront of the American literacy scene and gained international fame. His eagerly anticipated second novel, "Nights in Aruba, " confirms Holleran's place as one of America's most exciting writers. At the center of this groundbreaking novel is Paul, an uneasy commuter between two parallel lives: one as the dutiful son of aging, upper-middle-class parents, the other as a gay man plunged deliriously into the world of bars, baths, and one-night stands. Told with wry humour and subtle lyricism, Holleran's classic novel of love shared and love concealed is the stuff of tragedy, of comedy - in fact, of life itself.
