520    In graphic art format, describes the friendship between 
       two roommates on the MTV show "Real World," one of whom 
       died of AIDS. In this inspiring memoir in graphic novel 
       form, the author relates his friendship with an HIV-
       positive AIDS activist while they were roommates during 
       the filming of the MTV show "Real World". Pedro Zamora 
       showed how people afflicted with the AIDS virus can live 
       with dignity and humor. Illustrations. "You are eighteen 
       years old. You get up in front of a thousand people-your 
       classmates, your friends, basically the people who make up
       your entire existence-and announce, 'I'm HIV positive.'" 
       Told entirely in sequential art, here is the story of the 
       life-changing friendship between the author, a cartoonist 
       from Long Island, and Pedro Zamora, an HIV-positive AIDS 
       activist, which was filmed day by day on MTV's Real World 
       San Francisco. As a speaker and educator, a guest on many 
       talk shows (including Oprah), and when his tragic death 
       received front-page coverage in the press, Pedro taught a 
       generation that AIDS was not a punishment for moral 
       defects or a mere killer that reduced humans to wraiths. 
       Rather, he showed how those afflicted with the disease 
       could live and love nobly with intelligence, humor and 
       great humanity. Judd Winick's compelling memoir allows 
       each of us to experience the vitally important message 
       Pedro brought us. Inspiring, moving, informative, and 
       instantly accessible, Pedro and Me could become one of the
       books that defines a generation.
