Summary
"Witnessing AIDS demonstrates the extent to which memoirs and diaries intervene in the creation of cultural memory. Brophy's aim is to develop a framework for reading, one that begins to grasp the significance of our unresolved grief in response to AIDS and its effect upon testimonial writing. By highlighting our profound investment in the mundane intimacies of illness, death, and grief, Brophy resituates a number of critical debates surrounding autobiography, trauma, and memory at new and provocative intersections."--Jacket
