In this insightful and inspirational memoir, Michael H. Ward returns to the early years of the AIDS epidemic, when so little was known and so few who were diagnosed survived. He chronicles in candid detail his partner Mark’s decline and eventual death. By looking back on these devastating events, the author not only honors a generation lost to the illness but also opens a vital window onto the past, before medication helped save lives and when HIV/AIDS was a death sentence.
The Sea Is Quiet Tonight is heralded as a Kirkus Review Best Book of 2016.
The link to his website, has a video and gallery of photos of the years Mike spent with his partner, Mark.
