Without a doubt the most important gay political writer of our time, Kramer's passionate essays have mobilized the gay community for more than a decade. A cofounder of Gay Men's Health Crisis, ACT UP (AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power), and author of the controversial novel Faggots, Kramer has shown how mighty the pen can be.

The controversial author of the novel Faggots and the play The Normal Heart has collected his letters, speeches, and essays chronicling his frustrations as cofounder of the Gay Men's Health Crisis and AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power (ACT UP). Arranged in chronological order from 1978 to the present, they are a call to the gay community to mobilize against the inept bureaucrats who let "an epidemic that could have been contained" go unfettered. The pieces are passionately angry and, because his warnings have gone largely unheeded, use increasingly scathing language. The long essay "Report from the Holocaust" seems less vitriolic but no less powerful than the shorter selections, some of which are undated, a flaw in this important historical document.
- James E. Van Buskirk, Acad. of Art Coll. Lib., San Francisco
