About this title


In this memoir, Selwyn (medicine, Yale U) explains how his experiences with the first wave of the AIDS epidemic in the Bronx brought to the surface his subconscious grief over his father's apparent suicide. He then shows how his awareness of a relation between the stigma of AIDS and the stigma of suicide led him to overidentify with his patients and become excessively dedicated to his work, and how his eventual understanding of this situation caused him to resume his proper roles in his family and as a father. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
