Stage Struck: Theater, Aids, and the Marketing of Gay America is about exactly what the title says. It is the story of how Sarah Schulman attempted to publisize the idea of Rent plagerizing her book People in trouble. It also talks about the false information provided to the public by Rent. This false information has to do with homosexuality and the fight against AIDS. I suggest those who enjoy reading about legal struggles or those who enjoyed the musical Rent to read this book.
