The March

a novel by Walter Holland

First published in 1996, Walter Holland’s début novel is a moving testament to the power of friendship during even the worst of times. Beginning on a hot summer night in 1980, The March revolves around a circle of young gay men and the many others their lives touch. Over time, each character changes in unexpected ways; lives and loves come together and fall apart as society itself is altered by the onslaught of AIDS.



“Part epic, part Bildungsroman, this latter-day Journal of the Plague Years details its central characters’ coming of age as gay men and simultaneously coming to terms far too soon with mortality.”
