Cary Alan Johnson & Sarah Schulman

Cary Alan JohnsonSarah SchulmanIN-STORE: Live on Fulton St!
Thursday, September 8, 7:30 PM ET
Cary Alan Johnson presents Desire Lines
In conversation with Sarah Schulman

In his raw and revelatory debut novel, Africanist, activist, author, and Brooklyn native Cary Alan Johnson takes readers on a journey through gay New York in the 1980s—the sex, the drugs, and the trauma of AIDS—from the fresh perspective of a young Black man coming of age. An unflinching and passionate look at a moment in American history marked equally by dramatic devastation and fierce determination, Desire Lines confronts the shame too often associated with our desires and pulls us back from that awful abyss. Greenlight welcomes Johnson to our Fort Greene store for a reading and discussion with award-winning author Sarah Schulman (Let the Record Show) from this "riveting, lyrical tale" that explores African American queer identity and examines the intensity of relationships between gay men and their female friends (Kirkus Reviews).
