Praise

"David Wojnarowicz is brilliantly attuned to American talk and responsive to the moods and innovations of society’s truants. He also has the best conscience of any writer I know. This fierce, erotic, haunting, truthful book should be given to every teenager immediately." — Dennis Cooper

"Wojnarowicz’s writing fairly smokes with acrid ironies. It’s passionate and personal." — New York

"Everyone should read Close to the Knives to understand the overall political agenda behind suffering, whether that suffering occurs because of a dysfunctional family, religion, or government. Wojnarowicz explores all of his painful life experiences as a plea for all of us to become more compassionate and caring human beings. This isn’t just David’s story, it’s our story, our nation’s story." — Karen Finley
