Description

This is an anthology of writing and photography about AIDS. It is a terrifyingly realistic view of a dreadful disease that kills people: lovers, friends, family, perhaps even you.Written In The Skin is divided into three thematic sections — the body, loss, and death. Each of the these illustrates human longings and the sense of internal betrayal when one's own body turns against itself.This book collects the work of 38 writers, both new and established, in a variety of styles, writing about the effects of AIDS. The disease has affected each writer, through the loss of a friend, a family member or lover, or through living with disease. These powerful short stories and poems are combined with the dark and evocative photographs of award-winning photographer Jules de Niverville.Written In The Skin is both elegy to those who have been lost to AIDS and testament to the heart's capabilities.The royalties from the sale of this book will be donated to the Canadian Association AIDS Hospices.
