Chapter 5 investigates Jarman's collaborative writing technique in Kicking the Pricks, which is created using a method similar to that used in Dancing Ledge. It also examines several pivotal moments in Jarman's life as they are relayed in this book: his diagnosis as HIV-positive and the reflective re-evaluation of his relationship with both of his parents, made possible by the death of his father.
