Michael Cunningham wrote a spectacular book about two friends Bobby and Jonathan, and a girl named Clare. Jonathan is gay and he's in love with Bobby. Clare and Bobby had a baby, and the three of them moved to the country and live together. It might not be happily ever after, but they're making do.
This is a book I wouldn't have read when I was younger. I prefer HEA [happily, ever after] books. This one, I am not sure if it's a happy ending. This book was made into a movie with Collin Farell. I have not seen the movie, but perhaps I should just to have a different perspective with this story. Michael Cunningham also wrote a book called, The Hours. This book won the Pulitzer prize, and was made into a movie with Nicole Kidman and Julian Moore.
