At Your Own Risk

A Saint's Testament. Ed. by Michael Christie

WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY MATTHEW TODD

In At Your Own Risk, Derek Jarman weaves poetry, prose, photographs and newspaper extracts into a rich tapestry of gay experience in the UK. The buttoned-up repression of the fifties and sixties makes way for liberation and free love in the seventies, only to be chased by the terror and pain of HIV/AIDS. This is Jarman at his passionate, polemic best, written when he was already ill with HIV and in the midst of the moral panic surrounding the AIDS crisis. Defiant and furious, he not only celebrates his own sexuality but skewers wider society for its brazen homophobia.

Reissued here 25 years after Jarman's death, At Your Own Risk remains a singular work. It is a powerful reminder of how far we have come and how much further we have left to go.
