Brendan Wolf: A Novel : Who is Brendan Wolf? It all depends on who you ask. To the staff of a Minneapolis nursing home, he's the devoted partner of a much older man who's recently suffered a debilitating stroke. To the women of a conservative, Christian pro-life organization, he's the tireless volunteer grieving over the recent loss of his wife and their unborn child. To one gay activist, he's the unaffectedly charming, yet directionless and unemployed man that he's fallen hopelessly in love with. To his brother and his brother's wife, he's the lynchpin of a scam that will net them enough money to start their lives over somewhere new. To the general public, he's an armed and dangerous fugitive.
