    AAMBC Book Reviews

    HIV/AIDS continues to be the elephant in the room in African-American communities all across the country. Yet the disease is one of the most devastating killers of African Americans and the numbers in new cases continues to grow. In this anthology of ten short stories, The Shattered Glass Effect takes a realistic and compelling look at the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the African-American community and why it keeps growing. Although the stories are fiction, they do not take the easy happily ever after approach usually found in narrative fiction. Each story stands on its own, but at the same time they are interconnected and emphasize a crucial aspect in dealing with the disease: support. The Shattered Glass Effect deals with all aspects of HIV/AIDS from how the disease is transmitted to how one can live with not simply die from the disease. These stories are well written, heartfelt and also informative. This is such an important read for all of us in the black community even those of us not afflicted with the disease for we all need to have concern for our brothers and sisters who must deal with this devastating malady. Authors include Sydney Molare, Erica N. Martin, Timothy Stelly, Sr., Gloria Dotson-Lewis, Qiana Smith, Sheila Poole-Miller, Deanna Michelle Smith, Michelle Davis-Newell, Gevell Wagner and L.J. Wilson.
