AV Bi-weekly : The vicious Circle

【明報專訊】Dave Eggers is considered an influential writer in the US. What is the What, one of his bestsellers that tells the story of the childhood of Valentino Achak Deng, a Sudanese young man, brought me a lot of tears and some giggles when I read it several years ago. The authentic voice of Valentino unfolds the true story of thousands of Sudanese boys' fleeing from war and witnessing genocide. Not only has it been a required read of several American universities' freshmen, but it is also on Barack Obama's list of good books.
