About the book:
A Modern Tragedy

In April Fool's Day Bryce Courtenay, author of the international bestsellers The Power of One and Tandia, celebrates the life of his son Damon and describes the difficulties of coming to terms with his tragic death from AIDS.
Damon was a haemophiliac, and his father's book gives an extraordinary insight into the life of a family coping first with haemophilia and then AIDS. It is also a damning indictment of an often heartless medical establishment's approach to haemophilia, as well as being a timely reminder of the carelessness with which the HIV virus was originally treated.
April Fool's Day is controversial, painful and heartbreaking. It is also life-affirmingly funny. Above all, it is testimony to the incredible regenerative strength of love - how when we confront our worst, we can become our best.

'I cannot remember when a work moved me so deeply'. Daily Telegraph
