"7 Miles a Second is the story of legendary artist David Wojnarowicz, written during the last years before his AIDS-related death in 1992. Artists James Romberger and Marguerite Van Cook unsentimentally depict Wojnarowicz's childhood of hustling on the streets of Manhattan, through his adulthood living with AIDS, and his anger at the indifference of government and health agencies. A primal scream of a graphic novel, 7 Miles a Second blends the stark reality of Lower East Side street life with a psychedelic delirium that artfully conveys Wojnarowicz's sense of rage, urgency, mortality and a refusal to be silent"--P. [4] of cover.

Mostly abstract narration and garish illustrations; effective in spite of the shortcomings though.

I am deeply grateful that Fantagraphics has reprinted this famed but rarely encountered book in such a gorgeous and accessible format. Reading this is an overwhelming experience: intense, profound, uncomfortable, disturbing and maddening, as the author no doubt intended.
