This poignant memoir documents one person's efforts to compress a lifetime of living, loving, and loss into a single decade, a decade that changed the way the world looked at sex, death, dying, and gay men. It talks about passion and devotion in a time when little was known and much was feared about AIDS, a time when powerful judgments were based on hardly more than vague hunches. Today, there are treatments, HIV tests, and a wide body of knowledge and experience concerning the epidemic. Senak charts these achievements step by step during his personal journey through the intersecting worlds of the dying and the living, and he creates a vivid tribute to the fallen.
