Ishmael Beah spoke about his book, Radiance of Tomorrow, at Politics & Prose on Friday, January 10, 2014.

The village is in ruins, the ground covered in bones, and two longtime friends who return home to their city, Imperi, try to forge a new community by taking up their former posts as teachers, but they’re beset by obstacles: a scarcity of food; a rash of murders, thievery, rape, and retaliation; and the depredations of a foreign mining company intent on sullying the town’s water supply and blocking its paths with electric wires. With the gentle lyricism of a dream and the moral clarity of a fable, Radiance of Tomorrow is a powerful novel about preserving what means the most to us, even in uncertain times.
