Boyhood friends, Jonathan and Bobby meet up again in New York after college. Bobby moves in with Jonathan and his roommate, Clare, a veteran of the city's erotic wars. Bobby and Clare fall in love, scuttling the plans of Jonathan, who is gay, to father Clare's child. When Clare and Bobby have a baby, the three move to a small house upstate to raise " their" child together and, with an odd friend called Alice, create a new kind of family.

This is my favorite novel of the 90's. Beautifully and sensitively written.

I picked this book up at random. At first it was strange, and I wasn't sure where it could possibly be going. However, this book gains some momentum once the characters are developed. I enjoyed the progression and watching them grow.
A beautiful character study. An honest depiction of an obscure family and a good read.
