A memoir of New York in the 1980s and 1990s--a time of

both enormous creativity and decadence--told by an artist

who was at the center of it all, including the AIDS

epidemic, and survived to tell the story. Peter McGough--

half of the team of McDermott & McGough, artists known

for their painting, photography, sculpture, and film--

writes about the trauma of growing up gay in 1950s

suburbia; about the East Village art scene of the 1980s

when he knew Keith Haring, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andy

Warhol, Jeff Koons and Julian Schnabel; and about his

meeting David McDermott who would profoundly change

the Victorian era. From then on, wherever they lived--in

New York City or in upstate New York--they lived without

electricity or any other modern conveniences. Their art,

called "Time Maps" was concerned with sexuality, bigotry,

and AIDS, and their photography--using cyanotypes and

platinum plates--had great success at major
