A SEASON IN LIGHTS
A NOVEL IN THREE ACTS
BY AWARD-WINNING AUTHOR, GREGORY ERICH PHILLIPS

In the colorful artistic underworld off-Broadway, Cammie, a dancer in her mid-thirties, has just landed her first part in a show since coming to New York City. Yet the tug of familial obligation and the guilt of what she sacrificed to be there weigh down her dancing feet. Her lover, Tom, an older piano player, came to the city as a young man in the 1980s with a story eerily in tune with Cammie’s own. Through their triumphs and failures, both learn the fleeting nature of glory, the sweetness of new love, and how a dream come true isn’t cherished until it passes. The bright lights of the stage intoxicate, while degradation and despair lurk close behind the curtain. Their sagas are marred by two pandemics, AIDS in the 1980s and COVID-19 today, which ravaged the performing arts community, leaving a permanent scar on those who lived through them. The poignant intersection of their stories reveals a love affair unbound by time, reaching across decades through the notes of a piano’s remembered song.

This remarkable literary novel is the first to address the devastating impact that the pandemic has had on New York City’s performing artists. In this compelling work, Gregory Erich Phillips, an award-winning author, addresses timely topics such as racial prejudice and prejudice against the LGBT community, interracial romance, drug and alcohol addiction, depression, along with classic struggles like sibling rivalry and family drama.
