Publisher Description

In print for the first time in 15 years, Landscape with Traveler was the first full-length novel by Gifford. It lays bare the themes that have marked his lifelong career: gay issues; a winsome, Beat-inspired frenzy of love; the generation-defining crossroads in American history. Written as the protagonist's diary, and structured as three acclaimed short novels bound into one volume, the book recounts the deep friendship between a middle-aged gay man and a young straight man through vignette-like entries, all the while tracing a history of US.

Review

"Landscape with Traveler is a novel with character. The tone is so light and airy it achieves its own separate sense of time...beautifully refined without sacrificing wit or warmth. It's a delight." --The Boston Sunday Globe "For reminding us so artfully of the difficult simplicities, reminding us of what we already know, [the protagonist] Francis Reeves will become part of our landscape." --Washington Post Book World

"Landscape with Traveler is a major accomplishment, a small profound novel that will leave the reader utterly affected. Barry Gifford has created a small masterpiece." --San Francisco Bay Guardian
