Vacuum-Packed cover

Two Worlds

In the closing decade of the twentieth century, Craig is an HIV-positive young man seeking meaning through escape, traveling from London to Bangkok, discovering that "The Land of Smiles" is one in distress.

Meanwhile Jamie, Craig's ex, immerses himself in London's club scene, trying to hide from the realities of his disintegrating life and a family that is too wrapped up in its own troubles to care what happens to him.

In this tale of desperation, damnation and redemption, we discover that sometimes to be human means simply to be.
