City of Thorns: Nine Lives in the World's Largest Refugee Camp Cover Image

This is one of those books that impresses upon the reader a sense of the unthinkable vastness of the world. Deep in a dusty, sun-baked desert, Dabaab is the city of thorns. Literally, as many in the overcrowded camp build houses from thorny trees, and metaphorically, as its denizens navigate a maze of corruption, violence, privation. Rawlence chronicles with a clear prose unadorned with drama or flair - it’s not needed. It’s a book that gives a new understanding of the depth of the human soul, giving context to the lives we lead on the other side of the world.
