292p., text in Japanese, later printing, very good hardcover in pictorial dj showing author with an African-American mother and baby. Variant title: Please hug me! Author is Japanese journalist and actress who attained fame for writing a book called Yellow Cab: Women who take off at Narita Airport (about Japanese women having sex with foreigners abroad); she is very controversial for her sensationalistic work. This book won a nonfiction award and was made into a film, one of first in Japan to address AIDS. It is an account of her experience in Savannah, Georgia in 1988, where she befriends and volunteers at AIDS Atlanta. She also discusses prejudice against AIDS in Japan - and how she receives inappropriate questions from reporters because her husband is African-American. Much about US society, drug use, being gay in the US; discusses her own struggles and challenges in volunteering. The focus is Georgia, but she also talks about AIDS in Hawaii, where she moved in 1989 when her husband's posting changed to a military hospital there. Contains many photographs of author with patients and her husband. N° de ref. de la librería 150854
