Love and Death on Long Island

Love and Death on Long Island Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When a cerebral British author becomes enamored of an American teenage pop icon (his first attraction to another male), his life spirals out of control. This novel, which references DEATH IN VENICE and LOLITA, as much as TUFF TURF and PORKY'S, is a heartrending, hilarious, and totally convincing story of unrequited love. This is the tie-in novel to the movie of the same title, starring Jason Priestly and John Hurt.

Synopsis:

“A literary gem, a tour de force . . . Beautifully constructed, superbly characterized. What disturbs is the sheer elegance of Adairs prose style –– most of us had probably forgotten English could be written so well.” –– Literary Review (U.K.)
