3 NearnessAuthor: David Caron

In this radical genre-bending narrative, Caron tells the story of his 2006 HIV diagnosis and its aftermath. On one level, this is a personal account of his struggle as a gay HIV-positive man with the constant issue of if, how, and when to disclose his status. But searching for various forms of contact eventually leads to profound reassessment of tact as a way to live and a way to think—with our bodies and with the bodies of others.
