"Czerwiec's work here serves as a valuable reflection on and historical portrait of the AIDS hysteria of the eighties and nineties in America. Combining her memories of that era with her contemporary perspective shows, and makes it seem unbelievable, that a group of people suffered so greatly because of their outsider status as patients with a transmittable, incurable, deadly disease. Taking Turns shows us the cost."-The Oral History Review "Whatever role we play in the health care system, this moving memoir reminds us to look beyond our institutional affiliations and find our place in the wider human community."-JAMA "Taking Turns is an important work that takes the field of graphic medicine in new directions, both in terms of its object-the philosophy and practices of a clinical unit dedicated to the care of people with AIDS in a particular place and historical moment-and its approach-drawing on the comic artist's own experience as a nurse on the unit as well as her interviews with other practitioners and patients."-Lisa Diedrich, author of Indirect Action: Schizophrenia, Epilepsy, AIDS, and the Course of Health Activism "Taking Turns bears important witness to a specific moment in the history of HIV/AIDS through the testimony of caregivers, patients, and volunteers. MK Czerwiec's story also issues a gracious challenge: knowing that we all live in vulnerable bodies, knowing that we will all 'take turns' needing others and being needed, how can we make this one life we have meaningful? This luminous graphic novel models how we can start: through creativity, community, generosity, and vulnerability."-Ann Fox, Davidson College "Czerwiec . . . does much more than just provide younger readers with a history lesson. For example, she thoughtfully explores what it means to be a healthcare provider. Czerwiec also explores the role of boundaries between healthcare providers and their patients and the need for empathy. These topics, I believe, would resonate with and be useful to students interested in medical or allied health careers. Instructors can use the book as a way to begin these conversations."-David R. Wessner, Journal of Microbiology & Biology Education "Czerwiec's role as a writer and illustrator of graphic medicine texts as well as one of the primary theorists and advocates of the genre, means that this, her first single-author entry into the form she helped establish is, like its author, doing the work of defining and practicing this new and compelling literary and artistic form."-Ajuan Mance, Women's Review of Books "The author's deft handling of the multiplicity of relationships involved in patient care is the strength of the book, and they are all represented throughout the narrative. Czerwiec does an excellent job of showing how Unit 371's commitment to care facilitated a depth of intimacy between provider and patient not often found in today's productivity-driven medical care."-Dr. Devlyn McCreight, Graphic Medicine "Among the takeaways one has after reading MK Czerwiec's graphic novel Taking Turns is that even in the form of sequential art, the story of the early days of the HIV epidemic is a visceral and heart wrenching experience."-Savas Abadsidis, Advocate / HIV Plus "Taking Turns chronicles [Czerwiec's] experiences on the evening shift at Unit 371 with patients and other caregivers, often told through voices other than her own, some of the stories funny, some very touching, especially the stories about patients with whom she became close before they died."-Hank Trout, AU Magazine: America's AIDS Magazine "For health care providers, the years that followed [the first official reporting of what would become the AIDS epidemic] were a time of tremendous loss, requiring a new type of caregiving in the face of a disease with no cure.
