About my work:
On the twenty-fifth anniversary of the AIDS crises, Julia Salazar's poignant novel, Natural Disasters, is a story about love, friendship and loss. Set in early 1990s Los Angeles, Jesse is a lesbian who works at an AIDS center called the Alliance. Though she is trained as a social worker to counsel everyone else, Jesse experiences her own series of tragedies. She suffers from mental and spiritual exhaustion from her work at the Alliance, her house is nearly destroyed in a mudslide, and her partner of ten years has an affair as they're about to celebrate their anniversary. But it is Jesse's friendship with Gabe, a gay man with HIV, that makes this book such a compelling read. Salazar's treatment of AIDS and grief-both as a communal and private experience-is tender and authentic. --Heather Aimee O'Neill, AfterEllen.com
First-time novelist Julia Salazar conjures a vivid portrait of AIDS-era Los Angeles with this story of a lesbian faced with a breakup, professional burnout, and the AIDS-related death of her best friend-plus earthquakes, mud slides, and other niceties of L.A. life.--The Advocate
