Senator Ihenyen holds the view that with regards to the HIV/AIDS scourge, the cure that the world seeks is hidden in the heart of mankind and that cure is love. ‘Stranger in the Mirror of My Life’ is a clarion call to the human race for compassion and empathy in dealing with the epidemic facing humanity.
History, the contemporary reality and the vision of an HIV-free generation is the overriding interest of this collection. “Stranger in the Mirror of My Life” can be described as a moving compendium and a companion for all people living with HIV and the rest of the world.
“Here has come a collection to remind us of our state of health since death leads life away. A collection it is to call to man’s mind, the balm and bower of existence since trouble narrows his hay of meadow. A collection it is, here, to heal the entire human race now that life sickens to endure. Ihenyen, through this collection in the spirit of seeking completeness [of mankind] has given name to those ideas which were until this book, nameless and always to be said though already felt.” ~ Faeo Lyre Clive
“History, the contemporary reality and the vision of an HIV-free generation is the overriding interest of this collection, in introducing “Stranger in the Mirror of my Life” to readers across the globe, I would like to say that it is indeed a compendium and a companion for all people living with HIV and the rest of the world.” ~ Osamede Osunde
