The Translator by Daoud Hari


I'm in the Darfur region of Sudan. I'm travelling with a British reporter who wants to tell the story of the terrible genocide taking place in my country. We've just had a run-in with a rebel group. They would've certainly shot me if it weren't for the help of Philip, the reporter, and a great deal of luck.

Let the book fall open to a random page.
Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
Share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … and please avoid spoilers!

But, one way or another, we would get the story for Philip, and Philip would get it out to the world. You have to be stronger than your fears if you want to get anything done in this life. (p. 11)

  1. Well, why I don't envy where you are, I'm glad that you're doing all right, because from what I read over at Natasha's blog, that isn't a nice area of the world in which to live (if you can) these days.

    As for where I am today, not quite as exciting, but later I may get a Messiah complex. ;)

    Here is what I'm talking about.

  3. justareadingfool- No it's not a fun place to be. All the death and devastation is so sad. Interesting read, though.

    Popin- Thank you! :)
