OK so here's the deal:

This book consists mostly of interviews with folks who crossed paths with DW during a narrow period of the early 1980s. This is about the art scene, not HIV activism or anything else DW did.

There are 2 interviews with DW at the end of the book. The rest is asking people what they remember about him.

Not bad but... just so you know.

Nice photos of E Village artsiness,tho!
