Novelist Uzodinma Iweala discusses his non-fiction account of the AIDS crisis in Africa, Our Kind of People: A Continent’s Challenge, a Country’s Hope. It tells the stories of the extraordinary people living with HIV/AIDS in Nigeria—the sick and the healthy, doctors, nurses, truck drivers, sex workers, shopkeepers, students, parents, and children. The book introduces readers to individuals and communities that are struggling daily to understand both the impact and meaning of HIV/AIDS.
