Reflections on Gay Life, AIDS, and Spiritual Desire
"[Giannone] emphasizes otherwise indiscernible patterns of grace, thereby sieving the essence of Catholicism from the dogma to redeem the gay community's place in the Church."
"...This is a work that resists easy or tidy conclusion. While caring for ailing female relations, Giannone rediscovered a spirituality inspired in part by the desert fathers and mothers of the third century and in part by his scholarly work on Flannery O'Connor.... His work captures two important historical points: the impact of AIDS on gay life and the experience of baby boomers as caregivers....His memoir will be of interest to social historians and many gay and lesbian readers."--Library Journal
