About this title


Twenty-three writers join together to explore the life and work of Larry Kramer, pioneer AIDS activist and acclaimed author of The Normal Heart and Faggots, in this original collection. The Academy Award-nominated screenwriter, producer, novelist, playwright, and co-founder of GMHC and founder of ACT-UP is one of the few visible gay role models we have for young people today. This unique volume focuses on Kramer as activist, writer, and personality. A controversial figure in the worlds of activism and letters, Kramer embodies the phrase, "the personal is political." This collection proves the impossibility of separating the activist from the writer and why perceptions of Kramer run from genius to provocateur.

From the Publisher:

"...Kramer is a pioneer, a steadfast and welcome curmudgeon, a prophet who has goaded politicians and many, many gay people to action." --The New York Times Book Review

"A striking portrait of an angry, determined and sometimes vicious activist whose impact is still being measured....Full of intimate and insightful nuggets." --Salon

"A captivating exploration not only of Larry Kramer, but also of the gay community's response to AIDS, of gay culture more generally, and of the issues of merging activism and art." --Lesbian and Gay New York

"The list of contributors corralled by editor Lawrence D. Mass reads like a who's who of contemporary queer literature...a compilation that casts Kramer as the curmudgeonly gay hero of our time." --The Advocate

"If you are interested in the original workings of ACT UP, the inside dope on GMHC, a blow-by-blow treatment of Faggots, and more dishing than you can shake a stick at, then you will like this book. Run out and buy it; it will be money well spent." --Lambda Book Report

"A biographical and critical study of American writer and AIDS activist Larry Kramer is long overdue, and this lively collection of essays goes some way towards filling the gap...[a] provocative tribute." --Gay Times
