Sonny Cevathas, the third widower, does whatever he can to deny grief, to avoid even thinking. A West Hollywood waiter, he more or less live in the gray Mercedes he managed to appropriate from the greedy family of his late lover. Relying on the gym and New Age platitudes, Sonny is determined to escape death by finding himself a rich new boyfriend. Instead he finds himself speeding headlong toward disaster. Just as Paul Monette's Borrowed Time defined AIDS for a generation, Afterlife is a vivid and startling novel about pain, survival, love, and unexpected joy

12 editions published between 1979 and 2014 in English and held by 330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Perched on top of a hill in the oldest part of Bel Air, Crook House is the grand mansion that gilded Hollywood dreams are made of. It seemed like the perfect place for the exhausted and neurotic Rita to take time away from her life and catch up with her old friend Peter and his lover, Nick. What she didn't count on was her friends' emotional baggage, not to mention the suspicious tales of a buried treasure underneath the house. This second novel from Paul Monette puts a tender focus on the ways in which money and time can distort relationships, while also demonstrating how the ties between friends can endure--and even grow stronger--no matter what the distance or history. As Rita, Nick, and Peter get closer to unraveling the mystery buried underneath Crook House, they begin to learn that what they are searching for could be the key to their very survival."--Back cover

"Come, what can the body do but go on, when the best of us are eaten from within?" writes Paul Monette in the titular poem. This mixture of doom and determinedness is played out with humor and warmth in Monette's poetry. In this quicksilver collection, his words are in perpetual motion, traveling from the Parthenon to Ohio and everywhere in between. Meditating frequently on sex, nostalgia, and love, these poems are serious without ever becoming humorless. They include charming and funny monologues from Isadora Duncan and Noel Coward
Lightfall by Paul Monette( )

3 editions published between 1982 and 2014 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the village of Pitts Landing, true evil can linger for centuries It all started with the desperate urging of an internal voice, born from a pulse-pounding nightmare: Run. With that, Iris Ammons felt impelled to leave behind her husband, her children, her job, and her idyllic life. Her motive was never clear to her, just a notion that her entire life had become unfamiliar and that she had to get to the West Coast and the mystical village of Pitts Landing. Similarly focused on the town is its devilishly charismatic cult leader Michael Roman. Michael cuts a bloody swath through his followers in order to get to the secret at the heart of the village. As the coincidences pile up and the omens stack on top of one another like the bodies of Michael & rsquo;s disciples, he and Iris find themselves at the center of a mystery that stretches back for generations and has effects that could be felt for centuries to come. Lightfall is an erotic horror epic from gifted National Book Award winner Paul Monette, a master of combining thrills with intense emotion, no matter what the genre. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Paul Monette including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the Paul Monette papers of the UCLA Library Special Collections
