Selected as a 2004 Lambda Literary Award Nominee.
Thirty years after the characters in The Boys in the Band gathered in Michael's Manhattan duplex to celebrate Harold's birthday, six of the survivors are assembled again in the same apartment for another occasion: a "Celebration of Life" for one of the original "boys" who has died. This funny, acerbic and tender sequel does not toe any politically correct line. Rather, it is full of debates about and criticisms of the post liberation world, allowing these men to realize how much they have changed and how much further they have to go.
"Crowley once again raise[s] his iconoclastic, querulous voice in a complex, tangled story." - Bay Area Reporter
