    Andrew Holleran(Author)
Andrew Holleran's Ground Zero, first published in 1988 and consisting of 23 Christopher Street essays from the earliest years of the AIDS crisis, was hailed by the Washington Post as "one of the best dispatches from the epidemic's height." Twenty years later, with HIV/AIDS long recognized as a global health challenge, Holleran both reiterates and freshly illuminates the devastation wreaked by AIDS, which has claimed the lives of 450,000 gay men as well as 22 million others. Chronicle of a Plague, Revisited features ten pieces never previously republished outside Christopher Street, as well as a new introduction keenly describing and evaluating a historical moment that still informs and defines today's world-particularly its community of homosexuals, which, arguably, is still recovering from the devastation of AIDS.

Review Text

  • By frida+edith on 18 January 2015

    Affluent white dude writes floridly about the suffering of affluent white dudes as the first wave of aids decimates the NYC gay scene.Its an interesting human document of a plague which seems to have been weirdly brushed aside these days. Eerie and frustrating reading, the impotence of said affluent white first world gay men in 80s New York in the face of a simple pathogen is chilling as ever.
