Read in January, 1997

Eric Marcus was also the co-author of diver Greg Louganis' autobiography, so from this gay-friendly source at least there is no inappropriateness in the tone taken towards Galindo's sexual orientation or AIDS (this book was published before Galindo discovered himself to be HIV-positive, but it is full of the tragedies of other men in his life, including his brother and his coach). The book is fairly candid, although it has obviously been carefully edited to exclude any sense of any real rage Galindo may lingeringly feel against the prejudice he encountered. I found it an interesting read, not least because Galindo has had an interesting life (a curse, indeed!)
