Guillaume Dustan's autofictional Dans ma chambre unabashedly recounts the HIV positive narrator-protagonist's drug-fueled navigation of Parisian gay sex culture. This essay argues that, despite the narrator's seemingly self-destructive tendencies, the novel offers a wholly life-affirming model of wellness and embodiment based on connectivity and a logic of prosthesis.
