Acerca de


Originally published in 1986, Paul Reidinger's first novel concerns three friends in their twenties -- he, she and he -- who find themselves caught up in a design for living that breathes the spirit of the 1980s.

David and Katherine meet as undergraduates and soon are best friends. In the ordinary course of events, they would become lovers. But there's a hitch -- he's gay. Adjusting to this with surprising aplomb, they go on as best friends, and after graduation move to San Francisco to share an apartment, and to look for a right man for each of them. Unfortunately, unbeknownst to the other, each finds the same Mr. Right in the person of Ross, a third-year law-school student. What follows is a comedy of the new manners that manages to be funny and credible, and an unconventional love story that manages to be credible and very touching.

From Publishers Weekly:

In his first novel, Reidinger portrays the modern version of a love triangle, one that involves a bisexual man, a heterosexual woman and a homosexual man. Katherine and David meet the first day of their freshman year at Stanford and quickly become best friends. There is no possibility of romance between them, however, because David believes he is a homosexual. After graduation they take an apartment together in San Francisco, where David adopts a gay lifestyle. The harmony of their friendship is disrupted when Katherine becomes involved with Ross, a straight-laced law student. David is unhappy with the relationship, not only because he misses his time with Katherine, but also because he is attracted to Ross. Remarkably, however, Ross begins to seek out David and soon they begin a secret affair. Reidinger tells his story in a casual, familiar manner and in flat, listless prose. Because he fails to develop his characters, the reader is unable to empathize with their pain.
