The Traveler's Companion
by David Foley
Summer 1985. Just out of college and not quite out of the closet, Mark sheds his girlfriend and follows his adventurous friend Lint to Europe, where they meet the compellingly erratic Ricka and priest-in-training Philip. When Ricka drags them all to Venice, Mark gets caught between a moody young Italian and a sexy older American. Then a disastrous side trip to Rome rearranges everything.
