Death in Venice, California by Vinton Rafe McCabe

Death in Venice, California: A Novel by Vinton Rafe McCabe is a darkly comic, highly erotic retelling of the Thomas Mann classic, in which a staid, middle-aged man of letters, Jameson Frame, finds liberation, exultation, and, ultimately, destruction. Frame escapes the cold canyons of Manhattan for the Bedouin village that is Venice, California, home to wiccans, vegans, transients, artists, drummers, plastic surgeons, tarot card readers . . . and Chase, a youth of such arresting beauty that he becomes the object, the subject, and the reason for Frame’s obsessive yearning. In Death in Venice, California Vinton Rafe McCabe’s prose is a musical language of narrative, harmonizing three-dimensional characters with a turbulent, erotic plot . . . risky and vividly told.
