Plot
As the AIDS epidemic continues unabated, people living with AIDS are in danger ofbeing overshadowed by AIDS "the issue"-- a topic for movies, political wrangling,and opinion polls. This powerful collection gives voice to the people-- thosewith HIV, as well as their caregivers-- who do battle at the front line of theepidemic. It is an intense celebration of life led at the precipice.The themes explored in From a Burning House are simple and universal:love, fear, friendship, loss. But these works possess a unique quality, as theydescribe a world on fire, a world where lives are quickened by the reality ofAIDS. For the writers in the workshop, the creative process can be healing. Forthe reader, the result is profoundly moving; a tapestry of writings that is atonce witty, wise and a painfully vibrant connection to the way we live now.A portion of the editor's and writers' proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to AIDS Project Los Angeles.
