Zackary Drucker

This stage of his work is from a place of desperation and an itching demand to speak out about living with HIV/AIDS, and trying to survive a hopeless situation. Wojnarowicz’s words are resurrected cries of help from recent memory that are more relevant than ever.

Published just before he died of AIDS, Wojnarowicz’s memoir is a classic of outlaw literature and political fury. Wojnarowicz — who was a great artist as well as writer — wheels through his wickedly difficult childhood, the deaths of friends and lovers, great sex writing, thoughts about art, screeds against the likes of Jesse Helms, all the while facing down his own imminent demise. It’s sad, funny, angry and transporting, a kaleidoscope on fire.
