Randy Shilts traces the AIDS epidemic in America. In a quiet, level baritone William Dafoe relates the initial consternation and confusion amid the medical establishment, the growing recognition of the seriousness of the affliction, and the political and medical maneuvering in response to it. Breaking Dafoe's narration in a bright, clear soprano, Lauri Garrett recounts the statistics of the disease. In an updated "Afterword," Randy Shilts summarizes the shocking status of the disease as of 1993. Certainly a remarkable listening experience both in content and in "sound." M.G.S.
