Book Forum – Hervé Guibert’s Cytomegalovirus: A Hospitalization Diary

This article is part of the series:
436-cancelliere-2700x1800

A quarter-century after it was written, Hervé Guibert’s Cytomegalovirus reads both as a vital document of a particular moment in the history of the HIV/AIDS epidemic and as a wonderfully spare account of the banal humiliations and little triumphs of hospitalization in the shadow of a then-terminal illness.  Republished with a luminous Introduction by David Caron and a wide-ranging and erudite Afterword by Todd Meyers, this slim volume is by turns poignant, humorous, and startling. We are very pleased to bring you a set of commentaries on Cytomegalovirus.
