Description: In this postmodern tale of a Taiwanese gay man reflecting on his life, loves, and intellectual influences, the narrator, Shao, recollects a series of friends and lovers as he watches his childhood friend, Ah Yao, succumb to complications from AIDS. The brute fact of Ah Yao's death focuses Shao's simultaneously erudite and erotic reflections magnetically on the core theme of mortality. His feverish journey through forests of metaphor and allusion -- from Fellini and Levi-Strauss to classical Chinese poetry - serves as a litany protecting him from the ravages of time and finitude.
