Close to the Knives: A Memoir of Disintegration

by David Wojnarowicz - £10.99  Canongate Books Ltd (2017)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781786890276 | ISBN 10: 1786890275

I am glad I am alive to witness these things; giving words to this life of sensations is a relief. Smell the flowers while you can.
 
Close to the Knives is the artist, writer and activist David Wojnarowicz's extraordinary memoir. Filthy, beautiful, and sharp to the point of piercing, it is both an exploration of the world seen through the eyes of an artist, and a moving portrait of a generation living, grieving, and dying through the AIDS crisis.
 
It is a triumphant hymn of resistance, and a dizzying celebration of the joys of seeing and living in the world.
