    Spontaneous Combustion Summary ¶ 7 Spontaneous CombustionA time capsule from the nadir of the AIDS crisis this book still manages to be amusing and bubbly thanks to Feinberg's rapid fire joke after joke prose style Most of the jokes aren't uite funny but enough are that you get to chuckle inwardly in almost every paragraph even as you inwardly cringe at the description of physical decay or wail at the heart rending subject matter If you're looking for a book about what it was like to be a gay man living in a gay ghetto during the height of the plague years this is a good one

    Spontaneous Combustion Summary ¶ 7 Spontaneous CombustionReminiscent of the movie Jeffrey this book is a seuel to the book Eighty Sixed The author has a fun time with the snarkiness of his main character BJ who is a gay man in New York City in the mid 1980's He is trying to date during the early AIDS epidemic and eventually ends up HIV positive himself Of interest to me as an HIV care physician in the descriptions of what it felt like early in the epidemic and the devastation it had in some communities as people's lives were drastically changed as well as the way people felt when medications were initially being tested for efficacy against HIV

    Spontaneous Combustion Summary ¶ 7 Spontaneous CombustionI'm skcepticle of older gay books I'm sure a lot of them were groundbreaking or whatever at the time they were written but sometimes they just seem antiuated and I find they dont really speak to my experiance This collection of short stories set in New York and San Francisco and written around AIDS themes doesn't really speak to my experiance either but the writting is solid and the stories are funny sometimes sad and still seem relevant
