Product Description

A Number One Advocate bestseller, this highly praised debut novel is not only compelling and entertaining, but erotic as well . . . the best gay novel of 1998 (Stonewall Journal)

With Where the Rainbow Ends, acclaimed short story writer and journalist Jameson Currier has written more than another AIDS novel. Packed with the stuff of life, this rewarding work might be termed a gay immigrant novel, a saga about men and women who leave their hometown and families, move to the big cities, and fashion new lives in an alien land (Library Journal).

At the center of this epic tale is Robbie Taylor, who settles in New York City in 1978 as an optimistic, romantic young man with a circle of new friends. This powerful and passionate story of the trials and loves of a gay Everyman takes Robbie through a personal odyssey into enlightenment, spanning a period of almost fifteen years. As he navigates through the hedonism of his heady youth in Manhattan searching for faith, family, and understanding, Robbie is constantly being tested, like a modern-day Job. Currier masterfully weaves an ardent story about the families that we create for ourselves, a story that is at once lyrical, poignant, and sexy.

Currier is adept at drawing a fine line between the erotic and the tragic, and at telling stories that, although personal, are also the stories of our community. . . . Currier s novel feels like the fictionalized history of a generation of gay men. The New York Times Book Review

A compelling and heartfelt first novel . . . Currier has created a powerful monument honoring a generation of gay men lost to AIDS and their wounded resilient survivors. Publishers Weekly

One of the best pieces of gay literature I have ever read . . . The book is about creating a sense of family, and most of all, it is about hope . . . This is one novel that I was sorry to see end. Impact

The author writes about love as only someone who has lost it can. Bravo. Poz

Jameson Currier is the author of the acclaimed story collection Dancing on the Moon and wrote the film Living Proof. He has written on AIDS and the gay community for such publications as The Washington Post and The Los Angeles Times. Where the Rainbow Ends was nominated for a Lambda Literary Award and was awarded the Arch and Bruce Brown Foundation Grant for fiction.
