HOMELAND An Extraordinary Story of Hope and Survival

by | Read by Dion Graham

Biography & Memoir • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

George Obama's story would still be interesting even if he weren't the president's half-brother. The story of the Kenyan who lived in the suburbs but fell into drugs, alcohol, and crime offers glimpses of street life and culture in Nairobi. Dion Graham narrates with a gentle Kenyan accent and provides spot-on impressions of Barack Obama in his brief appearances in the narrative. Graham gives the story an optimistic tone, despite the rough times in George's life. Still, Graham conveys the sense of hopelessness in George's lowest moments. Listeners will find that George's writing takes them into Kenyan ghettos much as SHANTARAM took them into the Indian slums. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2010]
