Neal Hitchens, Author Lowell House $22.95 (276p) ISBN 978-1-56565-006-0
``I am now able to hear a concert or see a fireworks display and appreciate the beauty . . . I know this may sound odd, but I would never have wanted to miss all of that.'' So wrote AIDS victim Mark Gifford shortly before he succumbed to the disease at age 34. His observations, along with those of others who have died from or are living with AIDS or a positive HIV diagnosis, offer significant comfort. Whether teenaged or elderly, an AIDS-infected parent or an AIDS-infected child, gay or straight, famous (such as the late actor Brad Davis, whose story is told by his wife) or not, the people included here mine hope, peace, meaning, even joy from their experiences. With their testimony, Hitchens ( Fifty Things You Can Do About AIDS ), himself HIV-positive, delivers inspiration and reassurance. (Nov.)
