"[The author] can interplay gay characters with aplomb and make his story so universally relevant that the reader can simply sit back and enjoy the entertainment. And in his novel there is entertainment aplenty!" Amazon Hall of Fame Top 100  
"It takes my keen eye no time at all to discern that Clifford is prettier than Claudia."
It begins simply enough: Twentyyearold Charles, a young dreamer and oddball traveler, arrives at the door of a cozy pizza shop owned by Clifford and Claudia. Clifford and Claudia are an unusual couple who share their home with Claudia's eccentric and outspoken elderly mother, ClaraBelle, who apparently owes her longevity to a lifestyle of cigarettes and whisky as well as their son, Cliffy, who likes to take out his aggressions on the family dog. For better or worse, Charles quickly becomes a part of the family dynamic.
One day, while buying a loaf of bread, Charles meets a disarmingly attractive young man he calls Mr. Chips, who shows him a thing or two about love and life, taking Charles along on a breathless voyage of the heart right up to the moment a senseless act brings the journey to a bewildering and harrowing halt.
Charles enters a world where reality becomes a slippery demon as he confronts broken connections, a fabricated childhood, improbable snowfalls, a disappearing adversary, and one unforgettable trip on the uptown local in his extraordinary struggle to reclaim what has been taken from him.
Savagely funny and somewhat cruel, Clifford and Claudia rips away the veneer of social niceties to expose the vulnerabilities that fuel the overthe top characters in this remarkable story of a young man's coming of age during his desperate days of life with Clifford and Claudia....
