With grace and affection, Fenton Johnson presents an unforgettable book about the transformative power of love. Recounting how he fell in love and found the courage to help his partner face death from AIDS, Johnson interweaves his own story as the youngest of nine children of a Kentucky whiskey maker with that of his lover, Larry Rose, the only child of German Jewish Holocaust survivors.
