Compelling, Eye-Opening Memoir is a Rare, First-Person Account of a Child Soldier in War-Torn Africa
Also see the New York Times Magazine Jan 14 2007 edition for a longer excerpt of Beah’s book. From a literary perspective I think it would be really interesting to compare Nigerian author Uzodinma Iweala’s “Beasts of no nation” a fictional representation of the child soldier experience to Ishmeal Beah’s autobiographical ” A long way gone”. I am really looking forward to this book and encourage eveyone to get a copy 🙂
Supporting Salone and Sierra Leoneans all the way!!!!!
