The author writes about the dying, and then death of her one brother with AIDS. For those who care, this is a signed copy, although I had never heard of the author myself. Its a very fast read, and good.
"A Small Place" by Jamaica Kincaid is a far better example of what this writer can do. I was really disappointed with this one after reading the other.

READ BY THE AUTHOR, JAMAICA KINCAID
In 1996 at the age of thirty-three, Jamaica Kincaid's bother, Devon Drew died of AIDS. Though he was a gifted athelete, intelligent and well read, he was also immersed in the drug culture. By the age of fourteen, he was involved in a murder and lived as a Rastafarian - a follower of the Jamaican religious cult whose members worship Haile Selassie.
This is Ms. Kincaid's well-written and moving account of Devon's life and the story of their family on the island of Antigua.
Author of several best-selling and award-winning books, Jamaica Kincaid lives in Vermont and teaches at Harvard University.
