Biography & Memoir • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

Listeners who can open themselves up to hearing the brutal memories of a boy who lived through genocide in Sudan will hear how his mother explained what he had seen done to his sister—rape. As narrator Ademola Adeyemo speaks the hard-to-distinguish English common in East Africa, experienced ears will adapt to his unusual accent as he recounts the haunting details of Emmanuel's life there and his struggle to survive a cultural, religious, and economic war. Adeyemo adds artistic richness by turning selected prose into poetry. This memoir—narrated by a native speaker using a parochial dialect we can barely understand—will transport every listener’s imagination to that place and those times.
