First Comes Love, by Marion Winik



When Marion Winik fell in love with Tony Heubach during a wild Mardi Gras in
New Orleans, her friends shook their heads. For starters, she was straight
and he was gay. But Marion and Tony's impossible love turned out to be true
enough to produce a marriage and two beautiful sons, true enough to weather
drug addiction, sexual betrayal, and the AIDS that would kill Tony at the
age of thirty-seven, twelve years after they met.

In a memoir heartbreaking and hilarious by turns, Marion Winik tells a story
that is all the more powerful for the way in which it defies easy judgments.
As it charts the trajectory of a marriage so impossible that it became
inevitable, First Comes Love reminds us- poignantly, indelibly-that every
love story is a special case.


This is a very clean scan and looks like a wonderful book.  I can't wait to
read it myself!
