Rate this:
The sequel to Karen X Tulchinsky's much-praised first novel, "Love Ruins Everything", picks up the story four months later as the characters prepare for the approach of the Millennium. Over the course of the year 1999, Nomi Rabinovitch and her lover, Julie Sakamoto, negotiate the joy and pain of a long-distance relationship; Nomi's cousin Henry devotes more energy to Aids activism, even as he must cope with intense treatments as his health declines; and Solly and Belle, Henry's estranged parents, are drawn closer by their shared love for their son. And Bubbe, aged somewhere between 92 and 97, might be hard of hearing, but she's certainly not blind to the crazy events swirling around her. A joyful, hilarious, and often very touching story of love, pain, activism and family, Love and Other Ruins offers readers another chance to spend time with the delightfully engaging Nomi Rabinovitch and her eccentric friends and relatives.
