Lay Your Sleeping Head characters ✓ 7 summary Lay Your Sleeping Head This is an alternate cover edition of ASIN B06X9XC65SThirty years ago The Little Death introduced Henry Rios a gay Latino criminal defense lawyer who became the central figure in a celebrated seven novel series In a brilliant reimagination of The Little Death Lay Your Sleeping Head retains all the complexity and elegance of the plot of the original novel but deepens the themes of personal alienation an. Okay I ve taken couple of days to think about what to write about this book and I m still awash in emotionFirst off you can read this book with no reference at all to The Little Death by the same author Though nominally a reworking of that book it is in fact completely different Concerned with different aspects of life It retains the basic bones of the first book in the same fashion that we are all humans This is a book about isolation and awakening About unbearable otherness About loneliness of the soul and finding recognition in another I recognized that tone it was a signal from one lonely traveler to another We moved through a world so inescapably and aggressively straight that coming across another gay man in an unexpected circumstance was like stumbling into a refuge where for a moment it was possible to lower our shields and breatheThe story takes place at the cusp of ATM machines cell phones and AIDS specifically 1982Henry Rios is a Public Defender who is already burned out by the age of 32 His awakening comes in the form of Hugh Paris a wastrel from one of the most powerful families in the area who is also their black sheep Hugh and Henry connect immediately upon meeting on a visceral level We caught each other s eyes again and then he said You think when you come out your life will be less lonely but it isn t You can find guys for sex That s easy Sex is how gay guys shake hands Don t get me wrong Henry I m not knocking sex But it costs so much to come out you d think there d be something at the end of it than another guy s dick My problem is I never figured out what that something is To be loved I suggestedI don t think I m giving anything away when I tell you that the physical Hugh is not long in the book but his presence is the catalyst for Henry s dark knight of the soul and towards the end a sort of rebirth If well the original book was a standard murder mystery though very well done and with a gay lead to boot the murder mystery aspect this time around is less who and of a why or how The previous book had its roots in Raymond Chandler and this story is Chinatown The previous book lacked sex scenes but this one has a couple that rather than titillate inform and amplify the level of feeling between Henry Hugh Beautifully doneWhat drew me into this story is the almost trance like meditation going on in Henry s mind His separateness from society He s a gay man in a straight world He s brown skinned He s Latino He s the first person in his family with a higher education moving among the wealthiest blue bloods of California And so he s looking for a place to belong and has maybe found it in Hugh What was love anyway Could two men love each other The world said anything we called love was a travesty of the real thing That was a poison fed to us from the moment we became aware we were different and none of us was entirely immune All of us wrestled with the fear that maybe the world was right that two men could never be than their parts and that together they still added up to nothing What I felt for Hugh told a different story When we were together we made something that was than either had ever been on his ownThe meeting and falling in lovelust for these two is fast and hard and absolutely believable which explains Henry s dogged pursuit of Hugh s killerFor those keeping track of the differences with the previous incarnation of the book I ll say that the character of Hugh is different too He s harder opaue and entirely true to his life experiences In fact all of the characters are Terry Ormes is prominent and Grant Hancock really breaks your heart I think that is because this iteration of the story of Henry Rios and Hugh Paris is the version told by an older man one who has lived and is wiser perhaps If you read both books it s almost as if the first book is a young man telling you a war tale and how in spite of the awful odds he finally prevailed It reminds you of that other Henry and the St Crispin Day speech whereas the current telling of the story is from the distance of time passed sorrow loss and the knowledge that love alone won t save us Nonetheless the telling remains hopeful There s a gauze of mist over this story as it presages all of the shattered dreams lives of young men lost and love that couldn t beWhat I loved about the character of Henry is that in spite of everything he never doubts his right to be happy and love whom he will You grow up and everyone around you tells you how it s supposed to be how it s gonna be but then for you it s different The uestion is how different And now I know It isn t different at all People fall in love Men with women women with women men with men PeopleI recommend this wholeheartedly and that cover is swoon worthy
