About the Author

Stephanie Nolen is the Africa Bureau Chief for the Globe and Mail, and one of only three journalists in the world dedicated to the AIDS story. She has reported from more than 40 countries around the world, and has won Canada's National Newspaper Award for International Reporting two years in a row. She was the recipient of the 2003, 2004, and 2006 Amnesty International Award for Human Rights Reporting, for reports from war zones in Uganda and Sudan, and also won the Markwell Award of the International Society of Political Psychology. She is the author of Promised the Moon: The Untold Story of the First Women in the Space Race and Shakespeare's Face.

This is a formidable book of record . . . from the tiny virus, via 28 individual human stories, to an entire continent. The stories will tear you apart before putting you back together, fully-armed and ready to go to war with a virus more dangerous than any W.M.D.
Magnificent, inspiring, informative. Nolen opens the essential door to the brave, suffering, human reality of the African AIDS crisis.
John le Carrè
From teachers to truckers, sex workers to orphans, Stephanie Nolen's devastatingly moving 28 puts heroic human faces on the catastrophic toll AIDS is taking on the African people.
;Elissa Schappell, Vanity Fair-HOT TYPE
So rich a portrait of humanity that it would stand up without AIDS as its buttress....this is a book about human life and human nature. 28 is really not about numbers at all.
Melissa Fay Greene, Toronto Globe and Mail
Nolen's stories give a human face to HIV/AIDS in Africa - and enrich our understanding of the disease in intangible ways.
