5.0 out of 5 stars This Wild Darkness: The Story of My Death, 17 July 2005
By 
Andy Bullivant (Sheffield, England.) - See all my reviews
A very good book, try it. Harold Brodkey cites himself as outside the American literary establishment. It seems that this is partly due to a directness which has at times been little more than bluntness. In this book his directness is an asset as it engages and disarms the reader. The prose is in the fluent uncluttered style of an academic writing for pleasure. He reveals his journey as he lives out the traumas of AIDS, he is offering his experiences for others to share. Humour, irony, anger and emotional risktaking make this a disarming and moving read with Brodkey consciously evading sickly sentimentality. A very good read, try it.
