A novelist and editor of StoryQuarterly, Lisicky follows his moving memoir of friendships dating from the 1980s, The Narrow Door, with a powerful account of love and loss in the 1990s. Provincetown on the eve of the AIDS crisis was a haven of inclusiveness, acceptance, and art, and Liskcky, escaping a history of family trauma for a residency fellowship at the Fine Arts Work Center, found it everything he’d dreamed. But with some 10% of Provincetown’s gay population dead of AIDS and AIDS-related illnesses by mid-decade, Lisicky’s search for love and companionship was always as weighted by tragedy as it was buoyed by joy.
