There's an Act-Up poster around the Bay Area now that reads 'It's easy to sell hope in an epidemic'. This book is about hope through and through. The hope that the black gay man has about his future and success. The hope that the Mexican man has in a possible treatment for AIDS only available to him because he has a twin. but he isnt out-of the closet to family. He tells Dexter 'You wouldn't understand'. He can't explain the latino Machismo. At the beginning of the book the lead character is a hot writer with a promising career. At the end he is forced to call the twin of his partner for money. They are wealthy. The topic of money runs as an undercurrent throghout the book. Corbin (now deceased) weaves a tale that has very real characters with very real (and sad) problems. In the end the book is not about Machismo, money or hope. It's really about finding love and trying hard to keep it
