Books Info:

The Gold Diggers free pdf Paul Monette, from his arrival on the literary scene in 1979 until his death from AIDS complications in 1995, was one of America's most diverse and prolific writers. "The Gold Diggers," originally published by Alyson Publications in 1979, was Monette's first novel-in fact, his first substantial published work of any kind. "The Gold Diggers" paved the way for seven other novels, most notably "Taking Care of Mrs. Carroll" and the posthumously published "Sanctuary: A Tale of Life in the Woods." Monette also wrote four books of poetry, including "Love Alone: Eighteen Elegies for Rog," as well as several screen-to-page novelizations, including Predator and Scarface.

About Paul Monette

Paul Monette (1945 1995) was an author, poet, and gay rights activist. Born in Massachusetts and educated at Yale University, he moved with his partner Roger Horwitz to Los Angeles in 1978 and became involved in the gay rights movement. Monette s writing captures the sense of heartbreak and loss at the center of the AIDS crisis. His first novel, "Taking Care of Mrs. Carroll," was published in 1978, and he went on to write several more works of fiction, poetry, and memoir."Borrowed Time: An AIDS Memoir," the tender account of his partner s battle with the disease, earned him both PEN Center West and LambdaLiterary Awards. In 1992, Monette won the National Book Award in Nonfiction for"Becoming a Man: Half a Life Story," an autobiography detailing his early life and his struggle with his sexuality. Written as a classic coming-of-age story, "Becoming a Man"became a seminal coming-out story. In 1995, Monette founded the Monette-Horwitz Trust, which honors individuals and organizations working to combat homophobia. Monette died in his home in West Hollywood in 1995 of complications from AIDS."
