~EBOOK ♌ Weekenders: racconti UK dal cuore dell'Africa ☪ Su iniziativa del quotidiano inglese Daily Telegraph , sei giovani scrittori britannici pi un giornalista sono stati catapultati in Sudan, nel cuore dell Africa nera dal comfort e dalla modernit delle loro occidentalissime citt , Londra ed Edimburgo, a un mondo fatto di sperduti villaggi, riti tribali e feroci guerriglieri Si sono trovati a doversi misurare con la violenza, la fame, la disperazione, ma anche con il coraggio, la fede, la speranza Una realt terrificante e bellissima, assolutamente fuori misura per i canoni europei Da quell esperienza sono nati i sette racconti compresi in questa antologia che, mescolando la fiction al reportage di viaggio, riflettono sette modi diversi di vedere un continente meraviglioso 4.5 stars Thought provoking and and really interesting. Well, it s cannot really be classified as a travel writing that it pretends to be. Loved it This is a collection of writing about Sudan published back in 2001 when a group of authors and journalists visited the war torn south of the country They then wrote inspired by their time there and published it to raise funds and awareness I m not sure I can say this book taught me anythingabout the political side of the conflict, which still wages on even now But to be honest I

short story or writing collection especially when it s been written by a number of different authors and been blown away by every single piece but to be honest I wasn t all that excited by any of the pieces in this book It started off on a high note with Alex Garland s very short story, but other than that it was a bit bland I think its mission is stronger than its individual components, which I suppose is fine in a charity effort, but it s not going to end up on my favourites shelf I m still glad I read it though, as I feel it taught me something This incisive, insightful collection is what happens when several writers skilled at their craft and keen to travel are brought to the Sudan and asked to write stories based on the experience Tony Hawks, best known to me for his Round Ireland

gentle ghost story of two boys playing and watching two men assessing a ruined, war destroyed school Or a long journey through the bush with a reluctant taxi man who begins to weep as he realises that he has made the wrong decision, and his passengers have the weapons Or we learn how the oil extraction has caused the poisonous snakes to move from the affected part of the country into areas where people and animals live This is not a cheerful collection, but it is worth reading to develop an understanding of some of the appalling problems facing this region Authors include Victoria Glendenning and Giles Foden author of The Last King Of Scotland who gave their time to create this book sold in aid of charity If I recall rightly a charity to benefit was War Child which creates playgrounds in strife torn towns and cities, so children can play safely Ancora una volta non sono certo che la categoria sia quella giusta Comunque, sette autori inglesi sono stati inviati, per qualche giorno, a

stereotypically with Poverty, First World Apathy and Civil War It s a pity this book isn t travel writing the best parts are when the young Britishers honest and well written reactions to Africa shine out and leave their lame attempts at fictionalizing a complex conflict in the dust.
