LOVE UNDETECTABLE by Andrew Sullivan | Kirkus Reviews
Jul 09, Pages. He revisits Freud to seek the origins of homosexuality and reviews the works of Aristotle, St.
Auden to define friendship for a contemporary, post-plague world. With its paradoxical sense of beauty amid pain, Love Undetectable has something of the quality of a war memoir.
Sullivan offers a moving undeectable of the open gay male urban sexual culture and his participation in it. Speaking to heterosexual and homosexual audiences alike, this book is about the first steps in that journey of survival.
Can the practice of friendship ever compensate for a life without love? Is sex at war or at peace with spirituality?
Can faith endure the randomness of death? Is homosexuality genetic or environmental? Love Undetectable, then, refers to many things: In a work destined to be as controversial as his first book, Sullivan takes on religious authorities and gay activists; talks candidly about his own promiscuity and search for love; revisits Freud in the origins of homosexuality; and makes one of the more memorable modern cases for elevating the virtue of friendship over the satisfactions of love.
Scholarly, impassioned, wide-ranging, and embattled, Love Undetectable is a book that is ultimately not about homosexuality or plague, but about humanity and mortality.
