Excellent literature I agree when Farah is compared to Garcia Maruez I think the Autumn of the Patriarch is meant here and Solzhenitsyn However when Solzhenitsyn provides account for and witnesses the events Farah adds structure draws laws of the phenomena and searches for solutions I think it s a great piece of dissident literature and I am ready for the next books in the trilogy and beyond it

Sweet and Sour Milk Variations on the Theme of An African Dictatorship #1

Omes a search for meaning The often detective story like narrative of this novel thus moves on a primarily interior plane as Farah takes us deep into territory he has charted and mapped and made uniuely his own Chinua Ache. A little too repetitious and self conscious to be completely engaging but still a fascinating read It is dated dealing as it does with Soviet influence across Africa and yet sadly still uite timely in recounting the overwhelming damage done by a self aggrandizing African dictator to ordinary people who love their country More importantly its exploration of the bonds between brothers and sisters husbands and wives lovers and tribesmen is beautiful heartbreaking and timeless Not an easy novel to get through but largely enjoyable

I read this book as the first in our Around the World in 80 Books book club and I really enjoyed it It s the first work by a Somali author that I ve read and I hope to continue on with the rest of this book series There is so much pain and passion included in this book and you can feel it throbbing through the pages Loyaan s story is one of searching tragedy and definitely digs into you as you read It s very hard to read this book without drawing multiple parallels both with our current politics in America and in many of the refugee crises we see around the world today Somalia s political problems began many years ago now so many people in the west have forgotten what transpired there the tragedy of this is that the situation continues to be very difficult for Somali citizens worldwide and also has provided a template for chaos which we now see repeating in other world territories The gift of Sweet and Sour Milk is making Somalia s history feel very personal and accessible to the modern reader I d encourage anyone who wants a personal look inside Somalia to read this book It will definitely leave you with a lot to think about
