Body CountsBODY COUNTS is eual arts memoir and history book Strub details his story leading up to and throughout the AIDS epidemic but there is so much information about the epidemic beyond his What Became Of Sigvald Anyway? Was He The Mad Trapper Of Rat River? personal experiences It s all woven together beautifully and told with suchassion and love but J'ai couru vers le Nil pulls nounches I learned so much and can t recommend this book enough The book is an autobiography about Stub s career as a Washington The Lessons of History politico in the 1970s and New York activist in the 1980s A journey of self discovery Strub s life also mirrored the lives of a generation of gay men who came from the sticks to the big city just as gay culture changed because of the AIDS epidemic in the 1980s Truth be told I wanted to really like this book It is after all an important story that needs to be toldHowever Strub s narrative is weighed down by the constant name dropping as he manages to be everywhere that is important in gay history Like other gay authors Edmund white comes to mind this need to detail important names andlaces hinders the overall structure of the book resulting in Clinical Neuropsychology Study Guide and Board Review poor writing that constantly moves between time and space This structure becomes repetitive and at times annoying for a reader who wants to understand Strub s journey The book needed some heavy editing to help smooth out the story that Strub is trying to tell At the same time the book reads like an apologia and justification for the choices Strub made in his life This sadly occurs too often in autobiographies However behind these structural flaws is a fascinating story that needs to be told There areeople who appear in Strub s narrative that Southern Biscuits piued my curiosity wanting to know about them and who they were In addition the gay and lesbian movement was already drifting away from its foundation as a sexual liberation movement toward a focus on rights and assimilation We re just like everyone else was the mantra as we began to focus on legal reform and mainstream acceptance 129Like so many gay men of his generation he was fighting a sense of unbridgeable difference161 This speaks to me volumes The shared idea that as individual gay men we feel constantly outside a feeling we carry with us sometimes as a burden Even if Michael didn t rant or obsess aboutolitics the way I did he had a uiet rage like many gay men That collective rage grew with the death toll and fueled the rise of LGBT and AIDS activism 162Yet as it became widely understood that new treatments enable us to live much longer we increasingly became defined not by our expected death but by our Hasare Dukh potential to infect others as viral vectors As we lived longer the criminal justice andublic health systems have come to view us even define us as inherently dangerous 396CuriosityAlan Baron a gay Washington behind the scenes Antidote Love and War
