Young lesbian Nomi Rabinovitch begins a long-distance relationship with new love Julie Sakamoto, as her AIDS activist cousin Henry deals with his declining health.

Blackwell North Amer
Here's the eagerly awaited sequel to Love Ruins Everything, the novel that introduced a cast of characters revolving around sweet-but-clutzy Nomi Rabinovitch and her AIDS activist cousin Henry. In the first book, Nomi lives in San Francisco and is coming to terms with being dumped by her girlfriend for (egads) ... a man. Meanwhile, Henry lives in Toronto and deals with the tribulations of being HIV positive. Love and Other Ruins picks up the story four months later, after Nomi has met her new love, Julie Sakamoto. Julie and Nomio are in love and carrying on a long-distance romance. Henry is embroiled in AIDS activism, but his own health is declining. Over the course of one year - the year 1999 - these lively characters (including Nomi's hilarious mother, Henry's Jewish Mobster dad, and their mutual grandmother, Bubbe, who is 92-97 years old ... no one knows for sure) come to terms with their lives as the millennium approaches.
