In this vivid and compelling novel- Tim Murphy follows a diverse set of characters whose fates intertwine in an iconic building in Manhattans East Village- the Christodora. The Christodora is home to Milly and Jared- a privileged young couple with artistic ambitions. Their neighbour- Hector- a Puerto Rican gay man who was once a celebrated AIDS activist but is now a lonely addict- becomes connected to Millys and Jareds lives in ways none of them can anticipate. Meanwhile- the couples adopted son- Mateo- grows to appreciate the opportunities for both self-realization and oblivion that New York offers. As the junkies and protestors of the 1980s give way to the hipsters of the 2000s and they- in turn- to the wealthy residents of the crowded- glass-towered city of the 2020s- enormous changes rock the personal lives of Milly and Jared and the constellation of people around them. Moving kaleidoscopically from the Tompkins Square Riots and attempts by activists to galvanize a response to the AIDS epidemic- to the New York City of the future- Christodora recounts the heartbreak wrought by AIDS- illustrates the allure and destructive power of hard drugs- and brings to life the ever-changing city itself....
