From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. "Unique," a word avoided by most journalists, is just the first to describe this heart-stopping memoir, written by a native Darfuri translator who, after escaping the massacre of his village by the genocidal Janjaweed, returned to work with reporters and UN investigators in the riskiest of situations. Taking readers far from their comfort zones, Hari charts the horrific landscape of genocide in the stories of refugee camp survivors: "It is interesting how many ways there are for people to be hurt and killed, and for villages to be terrorized and burned... I would say that these ways to die and suffer are unspeakable, and yet they were spoken: we interviewed 1,134 human beings over the next weeks." Danger is rampant, especially at border crossings, and the effect on outsiders is profound: "Some of the BBC people had to return to Chad, where they were in a medical clinic for three days to recover from what they saw, and smelled, and learned." Homey facts about the loyalty of camels, the pecking order in villages and vast family networks bring respite from more dire tales, including Hari's long, multi-site imprisonment with a U.S. journalist and their Chadian driver. The captives' endurance through uncertainty and torture is unbelievable, and their eventual rescue reads like James Bond by way of boldface politicos like recent presidential contender Bill Richardson. Throughout, Hari demonstrates almost incomprehensible decency; those with the courage to join Hari's odyssey may find this a life-changing read. A helpful appendix provides a primer on the Darfur situation.

Pressestimmen

“Pure, candid and deeply moving.”
–New York Post

“[The Translator] may be the biggest small book of this year, or any year. In roughly two hundred pages of simple, lucid prose, it lays open the Darfur genocide more intimately and powerfully than do a dozen books by journalists or academic experts.”
–The Washington Post Book World

“A book of unusually humane power and astounding moral clarity.”
–Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“This is a book every American should read. . . . In the spirit of courage and a desire to protect his people, [Hari] has written an emotional yet gentle memoir.”
–Deseret Morning News

“Heart-stopping . . . a life-changing read.”
–Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Format: Taschenbuch
Occasionally shocking, but riveting and highly readable personal account of the scandal called Darfur by Daoud, member of the Zaghawa, an ethnic group straddling the border between Sudan and Chad. It is (mostly) a chronological account of what happened to them and himself between 2003 and late 2005. Daoud, working from Chad, quickly establishes himself as a resourceful and reliable translator for newsmen and human rights researchers in Chad’s refugee camps or for forays into Darfur. His sixth trip, with a reporter from "National Geographic" is the beginning of the end of Daoud ever working in Chad or Sudan again.
Daoud has an engaging, inclusive writing style, sometimes laconic, sometimes invoking his faith or the international community, to undo or correct the gross injustice and unspeakable cruelties. He also turns briefly to his readers in many chapters with rhetorical questions or explanations. And the way he describes his Zaghawa people, its five sultanates is quite engaging. In the rest of Darfur and Chad they are seen as smarter than good for them, better planners, risk spreaders, networkers and businessmen. Readers will soon notice his mentioning his many cousins and nieces in London, Cairo, Ndjamena, etc.: the Zaghawa diaspora. Will they remain united when attacked from the air and ethnically cleansed on the ground by Sudan’s military and Darfur Arabs’ Janjaweed killers and looters?
This reader has spent some 18 very pleasant months in Darfur when it was peaceful and bustling with trade, ethnic diversity and optimism. That world is gone, most probably and regrettably, forever.
