This introductory chapter discusses the theme of this volume which is about the body of writing on the subject of AIDS that appeared in France between 1985 and 1988. This volume analyzes six texts written in the first person with labels such as real life/true story, confession, and autobiography. It explains that these texts are not AIDS novels. The objective of this volume is to determine how and why the authors invested in a particular genre and how their voices go from being ignored, to being muffled, to being heard, before finally being eternally silenced.
