by livres on March 4, 2010This is a unique voice telling a fascinating story about a part of the world most non-Dominicans won't have heard much about. It made me feel ashamed about my own lack of awareness but also spurred me to think more about other repressive political histories and diasporic peoples. I listened to it on cd's and found it particularly moving to hear the occasional Spanish words uttered by someone who gave them the emotional inflection that made their meaning clear, even to a non-Spanish speaker. This is one of the best books I've "read" (or heard) in years.
