Summary
Iweala embarks on a remarkable journey through his native Nigeria, meeting individuals and communities that are struggling daily to understand both the impact and meaning of HIV/AIDS. The the ill and the healthy, doctors, nurses, truck drivers, sex workers, shopkeepers, students, parents, and children-- their testimonies are by turns uplifting, alarming, humorous, and surprising, and always unflinchingly candid. A deeply personal exploration of life, love, and connection in the face of disease, and an incisive critique of our existing ideas of health and happiness
