This is a genuine, touching and darkly hilarious novel about a man granted a drug-based reprieve from his HIV death sentence. Ed Dell is gay, single and confidante to goddess Oprah Winfrey - at least in his fertile imagination. He writes for a Chicago newspaper, takes care of his ailing parents, and likes to annoy his snobbish sister. HIV-positive and very private, Ed has seen better days. With the new drugs working - and with Ed's parental obligations miraculously vanished - he suddenly, surprisingly has the chance to live again. If only he could remember how to...Then three men from Ed's past re-enter his life, and, each in his own way, instruct Ed in what it means to still be alive. "Planting Eli" is genuine, touching and very, very funny. Jeff Black brings gentle hilarity to the challenges of coming back from the dead.
