The powerful, personal and iconoclastic memoir of David Wojnarowicz, AIDs activist, author and one of the most provocative artists of his generation. With a new introduction by Olivia Laing.

From the author's violent childhood in suburbia to eventual homelessness on the streets and piers of New York City, to recognition as one of the most provocative artists of his generation - Close to the Knives is his powerful and iconoclastic memoir. Street life, drugs, art and nature, family, AIDS, politics, friendship and acceptance: Wojnarowicz challenges us to examine our lives - politically, socially, emotionally, and aesthetically.
