First Comes Love

There is little of essayist Marion Winik's life that isn't public record, and the living drama that is her life is beautifully documented in First Comes Love, the story of her marriage to a gay man who died of AIDS. Words like "touching" and "emotional" seem too trite for this book, which melds love with bohemian lifestyle and a true passion for writing.
