9781501285356: In the Absence of Angels

In 1981, Elizabeth Glaser received blood transfusions following the birth of her daughter Ariel. Then, in 1986, two years after her second child, Jake, was born, tests showed that Ariel had AIDS, contracted through breast-feeding. Elizabeth and Jake tested HIV positive, and Glaser's husband Paul, of TV's Starsky and Hutch fame, is today free of the virus that killed Ariel at age seven. Well aware of the stigma of AIDS, the Glasers retreated behind a wall of secrecy to protect their family. Only when the National Enquirer threatened to invade that privacy, did the Glasers "go public". Despite the book's title, In the Absence of Angels is a heartwarming story filled with angels - generous, caring, imaginative people who listened and helped.

From the Inside Flap:

The BookcassetteŽ format is a special recording technique developed as a means of condensing the full, unabridged audio text of a book to record it on fewer tapes. In order to listen to these tapes, you will need a cassette player with balance control to adjust left/right speaker output. Special adaptors to allow these tapes to be played on any cassette player are available through the publisher or some US retail electronics stores.

From Publishers Weekly:

Glaser, infected with AIDS through a blood transfusion, passed it to her daughter via breastfeeding and to her unborn son. Following her daughter's death and her son's HIV-positive diagnosis, Glaser has become active in fund-raising for AIDS research and has founded the Pediatric AIDS Foundation. According to PW , Glaser "delivers a wrenching, detailed account of her family's tragedy." Photos.
