'Our Kind of People: A Continent's Challenge, A Country's Hope'
by Uzodinma Iweala
(Harper: 228 pp., $24.99)
A physician as well as a novelist, Iweala looks at the specter of AIDS in sub-Saharan African, and especially his native Nigeria. Sober, thoughtful, yet never anything but empathetic, he leads us to confront our assumptions by constantly questioning his own.
