Product description

This book The Autobiography I Wrote' comes out at a time when the author finds his hometown village of Tina, abandoned by its people in the middle of the ongoing Darfur conflict over the past six years; the war has claimed the lives and destroyed the livelihood of the people and made the survivors of the genocide, homeless residents in makeshift camps for the internally displaced persons and refugees or in the Diaspora. The reader of this book will uncover the exotic nature with respect to its contents from the socio-cultural perspective. The book enjoys accounts and stories of real people and important events in the modern history of Sudan, which have taken place during the era in which the author witnessed, experienced and sensed the impact of those events in his life. The book as well reflects the author's nostalgia to his village where he spent the formative years of his childhood admiring its inhabitants and sharing with them happy times such as weddings and sorrowful occasions like funerals.
