    Summary

    “I’m not saying the leaves aren’t beautiful,” said Dan, “I’m saying they’re beautiful in October, not mid-January.”

    It was definitely Casey’s fault. Dan had decided to remind him of that fact, aggressively, every four or five miles, or in other words every hour or so. The road was not pretty. The snow, heaped into piles on either side of the road, was getting freshly bedecked by new snow with a rapidity he found more than a little alarming.

    “Look,” Casey said defensively, huddled over the steering wheel and squinting out into the mess, “no one said you had to come.”

    Summary

    It’s about remembering. It’s about ritual. It’s about the search for home. Three Passover seders in the lives of Dan and Casey.

    Summary

    “Daniel,” said Iris, “you’ve got to come.”

    “I do? Why?” He grinned, tucking the phone under his ear as he slid open the door to the deck. “Are you sure?”

    Daniel,” she said plaintively.

    “Fine, fine, of course. I will come and see your art, and I will be suitably impressed and murmur very profound things about it.”

    Summary

    A Manhattan wasn’t Dan’s favorite drink, but it was a classic. It was familiar and comforting in its familiarity with its thick, sickly sweetness.

    The maraschino cherry sat in the glass once he’d made it most of the way through, a neon blob, stem standing boldly upright. He toyed with it as he watched Casey arguing with Dana at a table, faces red and hands flying in heated gestures.

    Summary

    Dan liked Las Vegas. He liked the swirling crowds, he liked the women dressed to the nines, the constant glitter of excitement. He loved the pure, unmatched satisfaction of sitting at a game of poker among the highly skilled and immensely talented regardless of whether he won or lost, although if pressed he would have had to admit that he preferred winning.

    So when he got off the plane at McCarran, he was already feeling as airy and expansive as the bubbles frothing up in a flute of champagne. He had a suit carefully rolled in his luggage and a song in his heart. What more could a city boy need?

    Summary

    Casey tips his head back against the bed and turns to look at him, eyes a little hazy and smile lopsided.

    Dan’s breath catches in his chest as their gaze holds for too long a beat. He wants nothing more than to lean forward. Instead, he clears his throat and forces his gaze away, turning to stare at the ceiling.

    “This one of your mixes?” Casey murmurs. Dan totally forgot he had music on, R.E.M. streaming through his tape deck.

    “Yep.”

    Dan is hyper aware of every single place they’re touching. Which is basically shoulder to hip. He squeezes his eyes shut.

    Summary

    The view out of Casey’s picture window had never been what attracted him to that condo. He had bought the place on the strength of its location (close enough to work that his commute wasn’t a nightmare), price (slightly under budget despite the HOA fees), and two bedrooms (one for Charlie and one for Casey).

    So he wasn’t expecting the view to soothe his soul when he stared out. He needed somewhere to look, and it happened to be there.

    Summary

    “Dan,” said Sally, leaning in across the table, “you’re a very handsome man.”

    Dan grinned at her, just one side of his mouth; it didn’t make it to his eyes. “So I’ve been told.”

    Anthony’s was full of noise. It was late—too late—and Dana and Casey were gone. Almost everyone was gone.

    Sally toyed with the skewered lemon peel in her drink. “I think you should consider a proposition.”

    “Oh, really? What kind? I hope it’s indecent. Wait, no, that’s a proposal.”

    She leaned forward again, and he found himself leaning back, until her lips brushed his ear. “Come back to my place.”

    Summary

    College kids were impossible to talk to. They didn’t have offices. They didn’t have phones. No one at Dartmouth would give Casey any information about him, apart from one evidently senile man working in the academic office who seemed to think Casey was Dan’s father, and had zero understanding of confidentiality.

    ‘He’s more than made up for all the classes he missed in his first semester,’ he said brightly down the phone. ‘Don’t you worry about your boy.’

    Summary

    Summer in Milwaukee was not about to give up the ghost. The air crackled with heat, static electricity ready at any moment to burst into lightning, and Dana and Casey were sitting outdoors at their favorite burger joint. Casey was two beers in and feeling good. Dana was talking about the Eastern conference finals, because she had never been able to let go of anything in her life, punctuating her points with aggressive jabs of French fries.

    “Anyway,” she said, popping a fry into her mouth, “that’s what I said to Dan about it.”

    “I’m sure he listened attentively.” Casey tried to hide the smile that was struggling through.

    “He’s a good kid.” She took a drink of her soda. “Gets along with everybody. Kind of flighty, though.”

    Summary

    Dan takes a long drink of water. He thinks about the flowers Rebecca sent him. He thinks about Casey telling him he can do it alone. He thinks about a fresh start, maybe the first one he’s ever had.

    He thinks about Sam and what he might say if he could see Dan now, nearly thirty-one and no less confused than he was ten years ago.

    (Or, Dan and Casey from Spring 2000 to Winter 2002. From New York to LA and back again, and Dan finally finding his place. As told through six music-inspired vignettes.)

    Summary

    Dan celebrates the start of the new decade by getting himself a boyfriend. It isn’t the person he wants, but Dan figures pining over a married man who’s 3,000 miles away is the height of self-destructive tendencies, even by his standards.

    (Or, snapshots of Dan Rydell’s life between the ages twenty to twenty-four. From finishing college, moving to Dallas, and -- most, importantly -- having Casey by his side. As told through six music-inspired vignettes.)

    Summary

    Later, Dan will look back on that moment. He’ll tell himself he should’ve been firmer, should’ve knocked the thought completely out of Sam’s head. Should’ve tried harder to be the kind of brother Sam deserved, like David.

    Should’ve.

    (Or, snapshots of Dan Rydell’s life between the ages of fourteen to twenty. From high school to college, to losing Sam and finding Casey. As told through seven music-inspired vignettes.)

    Summary

    Dana took a deep breath and pressed her fingers to her temples. “Who started it?”

    “Nobody,” said Casey, at the same time as Dan said, “He did.”

    Casey shot Dan a sidelong glare and muttered, “Way to throw me under the bus, there, buddy.”

    “Maybe if you hadn’t started it,” Dan hissed back.
