Paul Monette: The Brink of Summer's End
Distinguished author Paul Monette became famous for writing Borrowed Time: An AIDS Memoir, an autobiographical account of his long-time lover Roger Horwitz's death in 1988. His 1992 book Becoming a Man: Half a Life Story was also autobiographical and earned him the National Book Award. Begun in 1994 after Monette had contracted AIDS, this documentary chronicles his life, his loves and ultimately his death.
