    Before I read this book I knew absolutely nothing about Eritrea I still don t know enough, but I am glad this was my introduction Despite the cover and title it does not toe the typical Oh, poor Africans let s throw subsidized food and expensive pharmaceuticals at them and then all will be well line It does not paint such a simple story, rather it tells the tale of a nation that has been required to fight everyone the Italians, the Ethiopians, the U.S., the British, the UN the list goes Before I read this book I knew absolutely nothing about Eritrea I still don t know enough, but I am glad this was my introduction Despite the cover and title it does not toe the typical Oh, poor Africans let s throw subsidized food and expensive pharmaceuticals at them and then all will be well line It does not paint such a simp...

    One of my favorite passages Go to the edge of the escarpment, on the outskirts of town, and you will find yourself on the lip of an abyss You are at eye level with eagles that launch themselves like suicides into the voice, leaping into a blue haze into which mountain peaks, far off valleys and distant sea all blur at this altitude, only the most boisterous clouds succeed in rising high enough to drift over the city Pinned down by gravity, they form instead a sulky cumulus eiderdown that bar One of my favorite passages Go to the edge of the escarpment, on the outskirts of town, and you will find yourself on the lip of an abyss You are at eye level with eagles that launch themselves like suicides into the voice, leaping into a blue haze int...

    I can t remember the last time I had such mixed feelings as a book Its not that Wrong is a bad writer, or that her narrative of Eritrea seems untruthful or dishonest There s something about the inferences she draws from casual statements, and her over reliance on rumour and myth that detract greatly from her natural skills as a writer There s a little too much influence of the journalist reporting whatever she hears, and a too little of the researcher seeking to check their facts One glaring I can t remember the last time I had such mixed feelings as a book Its not that Wrong is a bad writer, or that her narrative of Eritrea seems untruthful or dishonest There s something about the inferences she draws from casual statements, and her over reliance on rumour and myth that detract greatly from her natural skills as a writer There s a little too much influence of the journalist reporting whatever she hears, and a too little of the researcher seeking to check their facts One glaring example is the title of the book supposedly said by a British officer to a ululating Eritrean woman after removing the Italians from the region during World War Two in the story, the title phrase is followed by the officer referring to the woman with a particularly offensive term In spite ...
