Synopsis: We have all seen the grim pictures of dying Africans on the news, or been momentarily shocked by the statistics; we may think we?ve heard all we need to know ? or can bear to know ? about the story of Aids in Africa.  But look beyond the harrowing dispatches and the noisy headlines and something else emerges: not just a single sad story featuring countless, voiceless victims, but many different stories that haven?t been told, stories of courage, determination and dignity, and each one with an individual human face.  In 28, you?ll meet the doctor dodging bullets as she runs a makeshift clinic in war-torn Congo, hear why Nelson Mandela decided to go public about the cause of his son?s death, encounter the trucker who has spent a lifetime picking up prostitutes on the lonely highways of East Africa, and have an audience with the Botswanan beauty queen proud to be crowned ?Miss HIV Stigma-free?.  Stephanie Nolen?s eloquent and sympathetic book paints a fresh and inspiring portrait of this continent in crisis, making it impossible for us to ignore and impossible to forget.

Review: "Brilliant and enraging, 28 contains accounts of some extraordinary people
doing courageous things." -- The Observer

28 powerful, unforgettable stories put a human face on the
catastrophe that now exceeds the plague in magnitude -- Positive Nation

A book of quiet yet overwhelming power delivering a message of
devastating moral authority. Moving, heartrending and uplifting -- William Boyd

AIDS in Africa is an enigma... What this moving book does is to
catch it by the tail and show us its face - it is our own -- Christopher Hope

Anecdotal stories about the lives of 28 people living with
HIV-Aids are told with powerful sensitivity, in a way that humanises rather
than reports -- Dazed and Confused

Magnificent, inspiring, informative. Nolen opens the essential
door to the brave, suffering, human reality of the African AIDS crisis -- John le Carré

Portraits of amazing people in a storytelling style that
approaches that of Alexander McCall Smith... a historical record -- The Independent

Probably the best book ever written about AIDS, certainly the best
I've ever read. I wept when I finished... because its impact could shape
public opinion as never before -- Stephen Lewis, former UN Special Envoy for HIV/AIDS, Africa

This is a formidable book... The 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

This is a welcome dispatch from an epic disaster we ignore at our
peril -- Metro UK
