LOVE: Something Infinite


Seron (the central character), receives a message that former love interest, Calvin is deathly ill and returns to the home and past from which he had fled seven-plus years earlier. Over the course of a 3 day weekend, he reacquaints himself with his family and friends in his hometown of Chicago. Seron repeatedly puts off visiting Calvin in the hospital, the primary reason for his visit, mostly because Seron fears that he has infected Calvin with HIV. The familiar faces and scenery force him to finally address internal feelings of insecurity regarding his homosexuality, HIV positive status, and mixed results with romantic relationships. In the end, Seron begins a long-overdue process of healing and self-acceptance.


Love: Something Infinite is a work of fiction that borrows situations and scenery from my experiences and aspirations. The characters are parodies, composites, and/or archetypes inspired by real-life counterparts. Following the tradition of works by bestselling authors such as James Baldwin, E Lynn Harris, and James Earl Hardy this novel attempts to effectively illustrate lesser-explored expressions of romantic love, loss, and self-acceptance. In addition, several original works of poetry have been inserted intermediately; adding further emotional emphasis to several key points of the narrative. Finally and perhaps most importantly this novel adds to the voices of the HIV/AIDs infected and affected for the purposes of further informing the public about the emotional implications involved in this epidemic and dispelling the common misconception that such a diagnosis is a “death sentence.”
