Wherever he goes, he seeks the admiration of other men, until one day - his beauty faded - he winds up dead, the victim of unknown circumstances. His brother is left to pick up and pieces and figure out how Nicholas came to his untimely end.

Christopher Coe was a writer, photographer and cabaret singer. He lived in Paris and New York City. Coe's first novel, I Look Divine, was published in 1987, his second, Such Times, in 1993. His style has been called "reminiscent of both Oscar Wilde's and Marcel Proust's late writings" (Publishers Weekly). In 1994, Christopher Coe died of AIDS.From Publishers Weekly:
Nicholas, a self-absorbed, narcissistic young man who feels he has been exceptional from the moment of his birth, succumbs to age despite countless preventive ministrations. "Sensual, mocking and deadly serious, this first novel casts a long shadow," noted PW.
