THE TRANSLATOR

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Mirron Willis

Biography & Memoir • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

With its incomparable elegance, Mirron Willis’s perfectly accented voice, as Daoud Hari, a Zaghawa tribesman, tells the horrifying yet tremendously humane, deeply moving, colorful, sometimes even humorous, but always gripping story of the genocide in Darfur. As a translator and guide for the NEW YORK TIMES, the BBC, the United Nations, and other aid groups, Hari puts his life constantly in danger. His descriptions of the men he intermingles with, and Willis’s delivery of them, are true, honest, and convincing. It’s a surprise at the end of the book when Willis recites the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in an unaccented, though still elegant, voice. An unforgettable book on man’s inhumanity to man is enriched by a stunning, unforgettable narration. M.T.B.
