New AIDS Memoir by Veteran Author David J Cooper Confronts Effects of HIV on Close Friendship
Having become disillusioned with his mundane life in England, and having suffered the break-up of a six year relationship, David decides to give all of this up and risk taking the opportunity of looking for a life of adventure in Mexico.
Although he has the security of being in a good job and living in an apartment overlooking the ocean on The English Riviera, this isn't enough.
Something is missing in his life and Mexico seems to be the answer......but, does this adventure turn out to be what he had expected?
He starts a new life in Mexico and two of his close friends discover that they have AIDS. One of them takes his doctor's advice and survives. The other one won't accept that he is infected. Not responding to his doctor's advice he retreats into his own world of drugs, male prostitution and partying so, tragically, suffers the consequences. David is frantic with worry, so much so that as a result his own health suffers. A true, and moving story.
Author David J Cooper grew up in a working class family in the West Midlands, England. He served as a member of Walsall Metropolitan Borough Council from 1980 to 1981. He moved to Brixham, south Devon in 1988. He moved to Mexico in 1998 and became involved with people suffering from AIDS. Now he taps that experience in his new book which talks about what happened to one of his friends who refused to accept that he had the disease. The book is entitled “The Party's Over” and is written from personal experience.
David drew from his experiences with these people to come up with the idea of writing the book. “My personal experience is unique,” the author said. “You just put the experience into a story about people suffering from this disease and readers can understand what happens to those close to them. I was a nurse in England working with people who suffered from AIDS, but when a close friend becomes infected it's a different story." he continued.
David was also inspired to write the book by one of his friends who is HIV+. “I don't think I could have written it without his help. Now I've made that happen.”
The book captures the heartbreak of the people and close friends and families of the victims who suffer. The book has its serious side, but shows a lighter side as well.
David J Cooper has written 6 books including “Diana, A Lady In Waiting.” He lives in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico with his dog, Chula.

This review is from: The Party's Over (Kindle Edition) I love reading true stories & this was one of them. It gives you an insight on how HIV+ people may think & there is always at least one person who truly cares for you no matter how bad they get done. I loved the story as it had many awesome points for people to use in this world today.
