From a Burning House: The AIDS Project Los Angeles Writers Workshop Collection: The AIDS Project Los

Price: $4.50

Availability: In Stock


As the AIDS epidemic continues unabated, people living with AIDS are in danger of

being overshadowed by AIDS 'the issue'-- a topic for movies, political wrangling,

and opinion polls. This powerful collection gives voice to the people-- those

with HIV, as well as their caregivers-- who do battle at the front line of the

epidemic. It is an intense celebration of life led at the precipice.

The themes explored in From a Burning House are simple and universal:

love, fear, friendship, loss. But these works possess a unique quality, as they

describe a world on fire, a world where lives are quickened by the reality of

AIDS. For the writers in the workshop, the creative process can be healing. For

the reader, the result is profoundly moving; a tapestry of writings that is at

once witty, wise and a painfully vibrant connection to the way we live now.

A portion of the editor's and writers' proceeds from the sale of this book will

be donated to AIDS Project Los Angeles.
