Along with being a thoroughly engaging read, The AIDS Crisis is Ridiculous is noticeably well-designed. The frequent inclusion of stills from the films and videos described is a welcome addition. The AIDS Crisis is Ridiculous is thoughtful and provocative, and may well find a place in the permanent canon of AIDS literature.—The Gay and Lesbian Review—
The AIDS Crisis is Ridiculous covers a wide range of topics, from coalition-building to the disappearance of New York City as a home for the fringes, from art criticism to South African AIDS activism.
—San Francisco Bay Guardian
The AIDS Crisis is Ridiculous interweaves the author’s intimate experiences, personal reflections on his own mortality and fear of death, and essential information on AIDS prevention and treatment. The result is a dynamic image of the fight against the pandemic seen through the lens of an AIDS video activist-Gregg Bordowitz himself.

In The AIDS Crisis is Ridiculous and Other Writings, Gregg Bordowitz combines memoir and critical practice to startling effect…He opens up not just his world but ours as well.
