Sarah Schulman discusses her new book Let the Record Show: A Political History of Act Up New York, 1987-1993, described by Alexander Chee as “a masterpiece of historical research and intellectual analysis that creates many windows into both a vanished world and the one that emerged from it, the one we live in now.” Twenty years in the making, Sarah Schulman's Let the Record Show is the most comprehensive political history ever assembled of ACT UP and American AIDS activism.
