Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the commentator for National Public Radio and author of Telling comes a book that is a memoir of breathtaking candor, an affecting yet rigorously unsentimental story of the extraordinary, passion between a straight woman and a gay man.

When Marion Winik fell in love with Tony Heubach during a wild Mardi Gras in New Orleans, her friends shook their heads. But Marion and Tony's impossible love turned out to be true enough to produce a marriage and two beautiful sons — and to weather drug addiction, sexual betrayal, and the AIDS that would kill Tony at the age of thirty-seven. Beautifully written, by turns hilarious and heartbreaking, First Comes Love is a miraculous account of love, loss, and survival that redefines not only what it means to be a family but what it means to be in love.
