A Memoir of Darfur

The Translator, A Tribesman's Memoir of Darfur
by Daoud Hari

ISBN 978-1-4000-6744-2
Random House; March 18, 2008

Just arrived here yesterday, The Translator - A Tribesman's Memoir of Darfur, to be released by Random House Publishing Group on March 18, 2008.

This will not be easy or pleasant to read, although some of the Early Reviewers who received their copy first have said that parts made them laugh, as well as parts that made them cry. I hope to read my copy tomorrow, and will post my review.

I requested Hari's memoir because I need to know what is happening in Darfur. Why isn't Darfur still in the headlines? The government of Sudan continues their long campaign against the indigenous people who have the misfortune to be living on oil-rich land. Barack Obama is our best hope for causing things to change for the better in Darfur. He has made the genocide that is occurring in Darfur an issue in his speeches. How can we possibly vote for anyone who can ignore it?
