Facing It: AIDS Diaries and the Death of the Author.


Even though the global epidemic of AIDS has had a shattering impact on the lives of millions of people around the world, the almost poetic artistry of Ross Chambers, a professor of Romance Languages and Comparative Literature at the University of Michigan, is built on the conscious and deliberate premise of not allowing one's subjective self to give in to the corrosive destruction of this disaster. The book never indulges in the grotesque or macabre but quietly touches on small insights and moments of courage.
