Moses, Citizen and Me
When Julia flies in to war-scarred Sierra Leone from London, she is apprehensive about seeing her uncle Moses for the first time in twenty years. But nothing could have prepared her for her encounter with her eight-year-old cousin, Citizen, a former child soldier, and for the shocking truth of what he has done.
"The considered and multi-layered story of a Sierra Leone family blasted apart by one of its children turning boy soldier in the civil war. It is a novel remarkable for its slowed, measured pulse and its calm analysis, its keenness to promise hope and rehabilitation even after the worst."
"An extraordinary novel about war, childhood, art and salvation. Shakespearean tragedy recast in mode Africa, transformed into a redemptive vision as magical as a midsummer night's dream."
