History professor Ned Brummel is living happily with his partner of 12 years in small-town Maine when he receives a phone call from his estranged friend - Jack - telling him that another friend - Andy - is very ill and possibly near death. As Ned boards a plane to Chicago on his way to his friend´s bedside, he embarks on another journey into memory, examining the major events and small moments that have shaped his world and his relationships with these two very different, very important men.Growing up together through the restrictive 1950s and confusing ´60s, Jackson ´´Jack´´ Grace and Ned Brummel take solace in their love for each other. But once they arrive at college in 1969 and meet handsome farm boy Andy Kowalski, everything changes. Despite Andy´s apparent heterosexuality, both Jack and Ned fall hard for him, straining their close friendship. Soon, the three men will become involved in a series of intense liaisons and bitter betrayals, coming together and flying apart, as they alternately hurt, love, shape, and heal one another over the course of years. From the heady, drug- and sex-fueled days of San Francisco in the wild 70s to the haunting spectre of AIDS in the 80s and the righteous activism of the 90s, their relationship transforms and grows, reflecting the changes going on around them. Now, together again in the most crucial and intimate of settings, Ned, Jack, and Andy have another chance to confront the damage of the past and embrace the bonds of friendship and love that have stood the test of time. 1.

There might be a blizzard outside, but it´s nice and steamy inside with my best friend Emily. I´m over at my best friend Emily´s house and it´s snowing outside, so the two of us are cuddled up under a blanket, watching some cheesy lesbian romance movie on a premium cable channel. But as we watch, I begin to have thoughts, feelings about my best friend that have never really surfaced before now. Maybe it´s just the proximity, the feeling of her body heat, or maybe it´s the fact that I´m feeling a bit neglected by my boyfriend, and am substituting our intimacy for that. But for whatever reason, I´m beginning to get jealous of her boyfriend, and I can´t stop fantasizing about rubbing up against her warm, naked body. Sooner or later, we find out that the light snow has turned to a blizzard outside, and I end up snowbound alone with her for the evening. It´s during the climactic love scene of our movie that we suddenly begin to fall into one another, losing our inhibition, and going wild for one another. And things get very, very steamy, very, very quickly. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Linda Shej. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/061206de/bk_rhde_002536_sample.mp3.
