Love Is the Cure: On Life, Loss, and the End of AIDS

Elton John, read by the author. Hachette Audio, unabridged, five CDs, 5 hrs., $29.98 ISBN 978-1-61969-039-4
Elton John lends his voice to this heartrending account of the worldwide AIDS epidemic. From his eye-opening relationship with AIDS crusader Ryan White to frank confessions about his demons and addictions, John’s performance perfectly captures the author’s emotions, outrage, and determination to the cause. John maintains that compassion is key to solving the AIDS crisis—a problem exacerbated by ignorance and stigmatization. Moments of anger are handled with a sharp edge, while his rendering of deep emotion is never melodramatic. John’s natural accent is a joy to listen to—although at times listeners might expect a breakout song from the musician. John’s performance is a winning one and his message of love is convincing. A Little, Brown hardcover. (July)
