Holding The Man
At a Jesuit boys' school, in 1970s Australia, Tim's eye falls on the footy captain, John. To their mutual incredulity, they fall in love. A love that lasts as they ' and the society around them ' change, mature.
When they both test positive to something called HIV, dreams, liberations, boundless possibilities vanish into the ether. But Tim and John have each other, and they'll need to hold on tight for what's to come.
Deeply felt, frank and moving, Tim Conigrave's memoir of living and dying changed Australia. Tommy Murphy's 2006 adaptation became an instant hit, and brought a new audience to this heartfelt and laugh-out-loud-in-the-sadness story of queer identity and the quirks of love.
