Nobody ever said AIDS
While numerous texts have dealt with the AIDS pandemic in Africa from the clinical, economic, and sociological to the academic and technical this anthology of poems and short stories connects on a human level and reflects an entire society dealing with the challenges of overcoming AIDS and HIV. Well-known writers such as Achmat Dangor, Dambudzo Marechera, and Sindiwe Magona join 16 new writers selected from the "Share Your Story about HIV/AIDS" creative writing competition funded by the Swedish donor foundation, SIDA, and conducted in collaboration with the University of Cape Town. Their intimate stories and poems explore love, sexuality, stigma, and loss, bearing witness to the disease and responding to its silent taboo.
