Acclaimed author Brian Malloy brings insight, humor and the authenticity of his own experiences as a member of the AIDS generation to this universal story of love and loss set in New York City and Minneapolis at the peak of the AIDS crisis. Published on the 40th anniversary of the disease's first reported cases, After Francesco is both a tribute to a generation lost to the pandemic as well as a powerful exploration of heartbreak, recovery and how love can defy grief.
Malloy is the activist and award-winning author of After Francesco, The Year of Ice, Brendan Wolf, and Twelve Long Months. The recipient of an ALA Alex Award and the Minnesota Book Award, his novels have been shortlisted for The Violet Quill Award and the Ferro-Grumley Award for LGBT fiction. As an early employee of the Minnesota AIDS Project, Malloy helped organize the state's first AIDS Walk in 1988 and has remained an engaged member of the community. He received his MFA from the University of Minnesota and currently teaches creative writing in Minneapolis. This program is funded by Minnesota's Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
