Paperback The item may have some signs of cosmetic wear, but is fully operational and functions as intended. At around page 80, I suddenly realized I was in the middle of a murder mystery, unlike the love story of the first novel. Entiendo que hay personas que simplemente no tienen made Estoy MUY enojada y sumamente decepcionada. Nov 28, Matt rated it did not like it Recommends it for: Vondo all 4 pre-owned listings.

Shelves: glbt Rest in Power, Patricia. Thank you for the wonderful words. A smarter man than I might have noticed the word "Tragic" on the back cover of this book. This book was phenomenal. That it has just had its 20th anniversary makes it all the more stunning to me for its ability to hold up over time, as so many books struggle to do.
Set in the year leading up to the Rest in Power, Patricia. Set in the year leading up to the Montreal Olympics, we follow the life of an ex-marine Coach who begins very much in the closet, and who falls in love with a gay runner left in his charge. The historical content was spot-on; her treatment of what gays and lesbians of the period went through was frighteningly accurate, and at the same time quite a positive reinforcement of many the things we have accomplished.
This book is a glimpse at the social rights movement that brought us this far, as well as the lives of two gay men written so well that you really will breathe with them. But, like I said, perhaps not something to read on vacation in an airport.
Or at least, pack a handkerchief. I have lived through the horrors of apartheid and know of the horrors of slavery and the slave trade in the United States. This book describes the discrimination and brutality suffered by gay people from the s to the s and in many ways it is like apartheid. I was simply riveted. Quite often I was brought to tears. The book describes the life of a gay athlete whose private life with his coach became the focus of attention for politicians, the media and I was simply gripped by this book.
The book describes the life of a gay athlete whose private life with his coach became the focus of attention for politicians, the media and the public all of whom tried every trick to have him dropped from the Olympic team all because of his sexual orientation.
How he overcame these obstacles through sheer determination and strength of character and the support of his partner is most inspirational.
