Summary
"In January 1991, when civil war came to Mogadishu, the capital of Somalia, two-thirds of the city's population fled. Among them was eight-year-old Asad Abdullahi. His mother murdered by a militia, his father somewhere in hiding, he was swept alone into the great wartime migration that scattered the Somali people throughout sub-Saharan Africa and the world. This ... book tells Asad's story, [from a childhood living in a bewildering number of places to an adulthood of financial and romantic success]"--Page [4] of cover
