Close to the Knives: A Memoir of Disintegration

by: David Wojnarowicz

Publisher: Vintage Books (1991)


Staff Pick by comrade: FG

Wojnarowicz calibrates his words in this memoir with razor-sharp acuity. This book is a spell for all of his lost loved ones to the AIDS epidemic of the 80's, a true must read.
