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