From Library Journal Paul Monette is a part of the first generation to suffer from AIDS Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome. His friend, Roger Horwitz, died after a long battle with the virus. Monette gave his courage, strength, and love as he helped his friend fight this battle. Borrowed Time is the story of the AIDS roller coaster. The book was highly publicized and well-received in 1988. On tape, Monette's interpretation is heartfelt, for he is not reading, he is reliving his pain. We hear spirits rise with optimism and then anger and frustration cut through his words. Borrowed Time becomes part of Monette's mourning process, but it also serves to bring the AIDS crisis to a human level in a time when much of the available material is cold and clinical. Recommended.
