LOVE AND DEATH ON 86
On The Issues Magazine
by Merle Hoffman
Volume 4, Winter/Spring 1985
I am overhearing a phone conversation - the tone of the speaker is intimate - concerned - loving - parental... long complicated words are being spelled out - RETINITIS - CHEMOTHERAPY - LYMPHADEN0PATHY - repeated again and again.
The voice on the other side of the phone was BOBBY'S - and he had missed his appointment "Is your lover with you now - does he know you will probably have to be going into the hospital?"
What’s concerning us, feminists and progressives? From the front lines to the back burners, our angle on vital matters on our minds and popping up in the news.
