"Ground Zero" (1988) is a book of essays by
Andrew Holleran. The title refers to a catastrophic disaster in Lower Manhattan, namely the havoc wrought by AIDSin the 1980s among gay men. Holleran's essays are by turns thoughtful, reflective, angry, frustrated, and mournful in the extreme. Particularly notable are the twin essays "Notes on Promiscuity" and "Notes on Celibacy," each of which is a collection of provocative aphorisms.
