Scissors, paper, rock by Fenton Johnson( Book )
8 editions published between 1993 and 2016 in English and held by 433 libraries worldwide
But for their children, the Hardin household was both a nest of plain affection and a place to leave. Now when Tom speaks to his urbanized sons and daughters, he feels as if he's calling across a river of neckties and office lights. It falls on Miss Camilla Perkins, the Hardins' next door neighbor, to provide shelter for Raphael, who has been diagnosed with AIDS. In her home he hooks up his intravenous tube while his hungry heart feeds off the spinster's memories of a simpler, though never easy, era. Through the intricately interwoven stories of the Hardin parents and children, Scissors, Paper, Rock contrasts the families we inherit - our blood ties - with the families we choose, our partners in love and our friends. After making love with a childhood friend in his parents' backyard, Raphael muses: "Who are those who will remember him? Who will remember the artistic sons gone to distant cities to die of euphemisms?"
