People in Trouble

Ly as they confront love in the time of AIDS The film Rent stole most of its best plot points from this nove This book is okay Its biggest problem is that the three main characters are also the three least interesting characters Just because the setting and the subject matter are interesting doesn t make a story interesting but it doesn t hurt All this book really has going for it is a good setting which it suanders on a cliche love triangle The emphasis of the book is these three boring characters in a standard love triangle with a radical historical movement going on in the background

Lante group a Chinatown cowgirl and ex leather ueen a real estate mogul and at the center Kate Peter and Mol I bought this at Waterstones in their 2nd hand LGBT section as it was the only fiction book they had about ueer women It was actually much about activism gay men dying from aids and the problems of homeleessness in New York It was really interesting and had some amazing passages The only problem with it was that the characters were all rather unlikeable The portrayal of a bisexual woman in an open relationship seemed terribly judgemental and she was pretty horrible Her husband was just atrocious The other characters were nice but had much less of their own story told Despite that I still enjoyed it I saw that Sarah has also written a non fiction book about activism and the gay community in New York in the 90s and I m tempted to pick that up This was a really sad book in many ways the setting with everyone dying was heartbreaking It made me very glad that the drugs have improved to take care of people with HIV and was a stark insight into what it used to be like

    i can’t remember the last time i finished a book in a day to be honest but Schulman’s writing made this book hard to put down i loved reading about gay women in AIDS activism written by someone who experienced it firsthand it may have been written in the late 80s but this book is still so relevant today the theme of liberal self satisfaction permeates the entire book and really made me as a reader uestion my own comp

    I read this mainly to form my own opinion on whether Jonathan Larsen plagiarized it to write Rent and I’ve come to the conclusion that unless writing a musical that takes place during the same time period and also features ueer people homelessness and art counts as plagiarizing I don’t think that argument ho

    Schulman’s short 1990 novel was brought up again recently when a journalist noticed that the main named villain in this novel is none other than a roman a clef edition of Donald Trump Named Ronald Horne he looms less as a political figure than a dark vague corpulence embodying the worst parts of the 1980s fetish with wealth and power At the time of writing Horne and the snarky passages about his dastardly new developments alon
