Here’s a quick photo of the folded-up Obnoxiously Orange scarf, which is getting so long it’s hard to fit the whole thing into a photo. The book in the photo is oversized as well. In addition to some silliness on my Kindle, I’m re-reading Randy Shilts’ And the Band Played On. I loved it when I read it in college and am loving it even more this time. With an unbelievable level of detail, Shilts examines the 1980-85 AIDS outbreak from every possible angle – from the Danish researcher who got sick and died after working in Africa to the patients, doctors, politicians, and others who managed the outbreak in those terrifying and mysterious early years. I am reading it as research for a writing project I’m working on, but it doesn’t feel like work. I’ll tell you more soon – probably over a series of posts because I’ll be reading this book for several weeks.
