ABOUT THE BOOK/
Keith, a reporter has to interview the first person to be diagnosed with AIDS and write a “newsy” story. It was the beginning of a lesson on the social attitudes towards AIDS and its victims in this part of the world.
Written in 1993, this novella explores two victims’ pain and angst as well as the dilemmas faced by those who encounter them. The writer makes no attempt to moralise, but merely tell the story as it would have happened had it been real.
