A stunning portrait of community, identity, and sexuality by the critically acclaimed author of The Narrow Door

When Paul Lisicky arrived in Provincetown in the early 1990s, he was leaving behind a history of family trauma to live in a place outside of time, known for its values of inclusion, acceptance, and art. In this idyllic haven, Lisicky searches for love and connection and comes into his own as he finds a sense of belonging. At the same time, the center of this community is consumed by the AIDS crisis, and the very structure of town life is being rewired out of necessity: What might this utopia look like during a time of dystopia?

Later dramatizes a spectacular yet ravaged place and a unique era when more fully becoming one's self collided with the realization that ongoingness couldn't be taken for granted, and staying alive from moment to moment exacted absolute attention. Following the success of his acclaimed memoir, The Narrow Door, Lisicky fearlessly explores the body, queerness, love, illness, community, and belonging in this masterful, ingenious new book.

Paul Lisicky is the author of five books, including Famous Builder and Lawnboy. He has received fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation and the NEA, among other organizations. He teaches in the MFA program at Rutgers University and lives in Brooklyn.

A two-time AudioFile Earphones Award-winning narrator, raised in the U.K. with American parents, Joel Froomkin provides a flawless blend between authentic American and British sounds. He is a specialist in dialects-having taught accents at NYU and coached Broadway stars and celebrities at major regional theaters and national tours. Classically trained with an MFA in theater from USC, he has over 130 full-length audiobooks to his credit and over 5,000 five-star reviews on Audible. He has recorded for Tantor, Hachette, Punch Audio, Bee Audio, and Audible Studios. His recording of Ruthless People hit #1 on the Audible romance bestseller list, and American Savages was a finalist for the Sultry Listener's Award. Recording LGBT material as "Joel Leslie," he was awarded Narrator of the Year 2017 and Audiobook of the Year 2017 by Sinfullymmbookreviews. When not recording, Joel is often chasing two loquacious wiener dogs who delight in preventing him from recording.
