Small Gathering of Bones by Patricia Powell
Book DescriptionThis award-winning novel initiates the reader into the complex world of homosexuality and AIDS in the Caribbean. It's 1978 and Dale Singleton, devoted twenty-something housekeeper and ex-lover of Nevin Morgan, is becoming alarmed as his friend, Ian Kaysen, is afflicted with a mysterious and seemingly untreatable illness characterised by pneumonia, lesions, and dementia. A Small Gathering of Bones is both authentic and viscerally affecting as it conveys the shocked puzzlement of those troubled by Ian's condition.
