I realize some of the themes in "Family Dancing" are homosexuality, family difficulty, divorce, cancer, ect, but I'm wondering if anyone understands what stance Leavitt takes on these issues. Does he give any suggestions in his stories as to how families can deal with and accept each other?

Thanks for any suggestions.

Amazing writer. Just read while england sleeps...Cried so much at the end though!

'While England Sleeps' is a very intelligent book. Leavitt has captured the mood of class and sexual alienation in a narrative which is very readable. However, I found the voice of 'Martin Bauman' very difficult due to its glib cynicism. The 'Lost Language of Cranes' is excellent and made a great film.
