Read if you: Want a deeply moving, at times painful, and ultimately hopeful story about a man struggling with the AIDS death of his partner.

This can be rather difficult at times to read--the pain and trauma is so acute--but it is definitely worth it. The horror of AIDS--as well as the stigma--is perfectly captured. 

Librarians/booksellers: There aren't many historical fiction stories about AIDS written by an author who experienced that era firsthand. Strongly recommended. 

Many thanks to Kensington Books and NetGalley for a digital review copy in exchange for an honest review.

I couldn't get through Brian Malloy's After Francesco. 
The subject matter has me desperately wanting to read this story. 
But I struggled with the writing style.
