Read full description of the books:
The Way We Live Now, published in the New Yorker 1986, is not just a short story, its a piece of history. Sontag tells the tale of a dying man and his grieving, worrying, gossiping friends. He has Aids and his decline is used to demonstrate the shock of the disease's spread through society, particularly those sheltered, wealthy parts of society that no doubt believed themselves sickness free, safe from deadly epidemics.
While Sontag's style in this story doesn't appeal to me (long, run-on sentences used to create a feeling of endless gossip, of everyone talking about talking, he said about him about her that she did what he said and they did...) it has the desired effect of building up a society around the sick man. Everyone is connected and everyone is threatened. No one quite understands the threat or who will be next, but they understand that their lifestyle could be one of the reasons why they feel no longer safe. They realise that they must begin to question their sense of freedom, particularly sexual freedom. There is a fear of others, a sense of rolling blame that dominoes through the friendship groups. It is a horrible, paranoiac circus that they find themselves in and no one quite knows how to cope with it.
As a piece of history, The Way We Live Now is photographically prophetic; it captures a moment in the modern development of Aids and looks at its effects and its consequences for the future. 6
