By Trebor Healey

Award-winning novelist Trebor Healey depicts San Francisco within the Eighties and '90s in poetic prose that's either ribald and poignant, and a crossing into the yankee West that's dreamy, mythic, and visionary.

When stricken twenty-one-year-old Seamus Blake meets the robust and self-possessed Jimmy (just arrived in San Francisco via bicycle from his fatherland in Buffalo, New York), he feels his lifestyles may well eventually be taking a flip for the higher. however the resulting romance proves short-lived as Jimmy dies of an AIDS-related disease. The grieving Seamus is obliged to maintain a promise to Jimmy: "Take me again the way in which I came."

And so Seamus units out through bicycle on a picaresque trip with the ashes, hoping to carry them again to Buffalo. He meets truck drivers, waitresses, university little ones, farmers, ranchers, Marines, and different travelers--each one giving him a brand new point of view on his personal existence and on Jimmy's loss of life. while he meets and turns into concerned with a tender local American guy whose mom has lately died, Seamus's grief and his tale turn into common and redemptive.
