Winner of the Baillie Gifford Prize for Non-Fiction 2017, David France’s How to Survive a Plague is a riveting, powerful and profoundly moving story of the AIDS epidemic and the unlikely grassroots alliance of gay activists, doctors, public health officials and research scientists whose campaigning led to the development of drugs which transformed HIV from a mostly fatal infection to a mostly manageable disease. “A masterpiece of intimate storytelling with moral purpose” (Andrew Solomon). David France is also the author of Our Fathers, about the Catholic abuse scandal, which was made into a film in 2005. He discusses the stories behind the campaign with Peter Tatchell, Human Rights Activist.
