Audible Editor Reviews

Narrator Ethan Sawyer's heartfelt performance complements the dramatic events of 20th-century gay history as experienced by Roger Sansarc and his cousin Alistair Dodge. Like People in History opens with AIDS-stricken Alistair's birthday celebration, and Sawyer immediately holds listeners' attention with his nervy tone as Roger brings pills to help Alistair end his suffering. The story moves back and forth from the cousins' first encounters as fourth graders and their subsequent experiences to the present day, detailing Alistair's fate amidst the fallout from the AIDS crisis. Sawyer voices Roger as a wry and self-aware narrator whose conservatism is tempered by his complicated empathy for his theatrical cousin.

An enjoyable epic that I'd wanted to revisit

I've read a number of Felice Picano novels over the years and have generally enjoyed them. This epic tale spans several decades and allows the reader to experience gay life in America through the dawn of gay lib to the height of the aids epidemic. A great listen and very well performed.
