B.J. Rosenthal--the dishy, neurotic, horny, cranky, and adamantly gay hero of Feinberg's Eighty-Sixed--is resurrected in this harrowing and insightful novel about AIDS and enduring with dignity and humor in a world that seems bent on stripping him of both.--The Advocate.

Customer Reviews

  Irreverent and serious look at AIDS impact

While Eighty-sixed was raw and frank, Spontaneous Combustion is more serious because it faces the AIDS epidemic. B.J. is a character much like the author who wrote me before his death. Irreverent, outrageous and in the middle of history.
  My favorite book for a long time

Funny, intelligent, serious, delightful...For anyone who's ever been through very difficult times and/or has been affected by the AIDS epidemic, this book will both hit home and uplift. I disagree strongly with the review at the top of this page. Yes, the book is disjointed, but in that sense it's an accurate picture of life in the midst of chaos and tragedy. The ultimate effect of the book, though, isn't a big disorganized mess, but rather the possibility for survival and even happiness. I highly recommend this book!
