One Family’s AIDS by J’son M. Lee

One Family’s AIDS
by J’son M. Lee  is the story of Gene Alexander McCoy – a young, educated African-American man who finds himself in a race for time to make peace with his family and God upon being diagnosed with HIV.

The story, told from four different perspectives, chronicles Gene’s life as he confronts such issues as HIV/AIDS, family, abandonment and homophobia. With the help of his over-bearing mother, a nurturing grandmother, and an uncle who doesn’t feel comfortable talking about Gene’s sexuality or disease, we learn the complexities of love and relationships, the damaging results of fear and shame, and how the relentless quest for the truth ultimately leads us back to each other.

I read this book because I was diagnosed with AIDS in 2003 and enjoy being educated. As I’m reading this book I was captivated by the thoughts of the family that were detailed in a unique way. I recommend this book to AIDS service organizations and the play should be on the road enlightening the population affected and infected by this disease. Great job!

One Family’s Aids by author J’son M. Lee provides a first person account of one family dealing with HIV/AIDS. Mr. Lee offers the reader tremendous insight into personal family perspectives as each character in the story is given the chance to tell the story the way he or she sees it. The subject of HIV/AIDS even in this modern age is such a taboo topic but Author Lee manages it in such a way that the disease is a part of the family yet family is the greater focus. I truly applaud the author’s choice to provide a quiz in the back that serves as another means of informing and engaging the reader. Well done Mr. Lee. This one is truly touching! I look forward to reading more from this conscientious author.
