A l’ami qui ne m’a pas sauve la vie

In honour of today being World AIDS Day, I’d like to recommend the book A l’ami qui ne m’a pas sauve la vie, by Hervé Guibert. It’s a fantastic, terrifying story of the early days of AIDS, including all the false hopes and promises of quick cures that were showing up. If you can read French, you owe it to yourself to read this book.
