Love Ruins Everything
Award-winning writer Karen X. Tulchinsky’s debut novel, Love Ruins Everything (originally published in 1998 by Press Gang), follows the adventures Nomi Rabinovitch, a sweet but insecure and bumbling butch lesbian as she recovers from a broken heart and negotiates her way back into the dating scene in San Francisco.
Summoned home to Toronto to attend her mother’s surprise second wedding, Nomi is drawn into the AIDS activism of her gay, HIV-positive cousin, Henry and Julie Sakamoto, the new woman of her dreams, as they battle to expose uncomfortable truths about the origins of the epidemic. As in real life, humour, romance and tragedy are woven though this warm, funny and thought-provoking portrayal of queer life at the end of the last century.
Insomniac Press is proud to reissue Love Ruins Everything for a new generation of readers to enjoy.
