    Self indulgent, occasionally wrenching, funny, angry It s no Normal Heart, but this autobiographical sequel is or less exactly what we expect from the Angry AIDS Man The Destiny of Me belongs to the tradition of late 20th Century queer New York art immersed in psychoanalysis as is the main character, a stand in for Kramer himself it all reads a bit on the nose in retrospect Freud is a bit hard to make not sound clich at this point Worth reading if you re a fan of 80s 90s AIDS literature, and as [...]

    It s a wonderful play, and it can mean a lot to people for many reasons For me, the technique of mixing the present with past flashbacks, in a way with no definite transitions, makes the reflections of Ned very poignant It makes me ponder if it is a hallucinative affect of the medication he is taking for treatment, or simply the reflections of a person who believes himself to be so close to dying.His relationship with his parents is authentic In life we don t all have happy go lucky relations wi [...]

    Sequel to The Normal Heart which was phenomenal This one I ve read few months ago after The Normal Heart and after watching the film but was lazy enough to write review I liked it I know that but I have impression that everything I think at the moment is actually my impression of both books along with the film Combined And there s no way to separate these three OK maybe there is but I ll leave that for some imaginary moment in the distant future And just as for The Normal Heart, it would be fant [...]

    a work with the power to shake its readers and yet remind us that hope survives when nothing else will with scathing comments on family, love, survival and a critique of the perception of psychology and society on homosexuality and AIDS, Kramer s play continues with the journey of Ned Weeks forward and even in retrospect to explain the character and his motivations and decisions and persona to his readers.

    This is the sequel to The Normal Heart I found it as powerful as its precursor but in a different way This play focuses on the years after AIDS and Ned Weeks fight to add a few years to his life by entering an AIDS treatment program run by his perceived enemies while also trying to make sense of the boy he was and the man he became Powerful stuff.

    This play was the follow up to the Normal Heart even though it was written many years later It is excellent and I would love to direct both these plays someday on opposite nights.He is such a strong personality Kramer that people dont always agree with him He was the founder of the New york Gay mens healtch center I admire him even though I might not always agree with him.

    I think it s trying a little too hard to be The Glass Menagerie Kramer says as much in his introduction The Normal Heart was autobiographical, too, but the story there was focused on the present and compelling because of it.

    Linked to the Normal Heart this book tells the chilling tale of AIDS in the late 1980s, early 1990s

    I want to stay a little longer

    This play is okay, but it felt heavy with self pitying and the over sentimentality of deathbed lessons learned.
