Close to the Knives: A Memoir of Disintegration

By (author) David Wojnarowicz; 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.
