WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY MATTHEW TODD In this book, which moves from the 1940s to the 1990s, Derek Jarman artfully weaves poetry, prose, memoir, photographs, film transcripts and newspaper extracts into a rich tapestry of gay experience in the UK. The buttoned-up repression of the 50s and 60s makes way for liberation and free love in the 70s, only to be chased by the terror and pain of the HIV/AIDS outbreak. This is Jarman at his passionate, polemic best, written when he was already ill with HIV and in the midst of the moral panic surrounding the AIDS crisis. Defiant and furious, he not only celebrates his own sexuality but also skewers society for its brazen homophobia. Reissued here 25 years after Jarman's death, At Your Own Risk remains a singular work. It is a powerful reminder of how far we have come and how much further we have left to go.
