This is a book of gay heroism and camaraderie in the shadow of the AIDS crisis. Franny is a proud, protective friend to the gay men of Provincetown, Massachussetts, as they fight their battles against self-hatred and ostracism. Haunted by the loss of his first love, Franny vows never to let fear and anger consume those who are treated differently for who they are. It is Franny's goal to ensure that there is a place in the world for everyone who feels they do not belong. This edition features an appendix of supplementary material about Franny and the author, as well as an introduction by Michael Lowenthal, the novelist and anthologist who authored, among other titles, the Lambda Award-nominated "Avoidance".
