by | Read by Prentice Onayemi, Abdi Nor Iftin [Epilogue]

Biography & Memoir • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

This harrowing story of a childhood in Mogadishu, Somalia, and the path to adulthood as an immigrant in the U.S. is told in a baritone voice by narrator Prentice Onayemi. He is an excellent choice for the true coming-of-age story of the author. Onayemi recounts both ordinary and harrowing experiences in a compassionate tone that draws listeners into the world of Somali exiles and helps mitigate the tragedies that take place. Listeners are treated to an epilogue read by the author, which further cements their feelings of connection after hearing about his remarkable life.
