Review quote

"'Essential reading in the Age of AIDS. Never earnest, and, whilst often painful, full of humane and painstakingly researched detail. Everyone needs to read this book.' Emma Thompson 'From the tiny virus, via 28 individual human stories, to an entire continent, these stories will tear you apart before putting you back together, fully-armed and ready to go to war with a virus more dangerous than any WMD.' Bono 'Magnificent, inspiring, informative.' John le Carre 'Moving, heartrending and uplifting.' William Boyd 'AIDS in Africa is an enigma. The more it spreads, the less we see it. It is deadly yet deniable. It hides in full view of everyone. What this moving book does is to catch it by the tail and show us its face - it is our own.' Christopher Hope"
