Dale Peck cover

Dale Peck discusses his new memoir, Visions and Revisions, with critic and editor Jonathon Kyle Sturgeon. Visions and Revisions revisits Peck’s experience as an AIDS activist and writer from 1987, when ACT UP was founded, to 1996, when new treatments dramatically extended the life expectancy of people with AIDS.
