Elena Schwolsky has written a remarkable memoir of a life dedicated to struggle and service. Her stories – from the front lines of the AIDS pandemic – are heartbreaking and profoundly inspirational. From Newark to Havana, Elena shares stories of great poignancy, humor and deep insight as she evolves from idealistic and passionate young woman to seasoned and practical veteran of the movement. Schwolsky never describes herself as a hero, but she most certainly is one.
