Reviews

Advance praise for Tears of the Desert "This memoir helps keep the Darfur tragedy open as a wound not yet healed."-Elie Wiesel, author of Night "This is a brave book. And a valuable one. Halima's story of the atrocities and immeasurable losses she has endured must be told. The world continues to turn a deaf ear to the cries from the Darfur region, and our failure to protect this tortured population is a measure of who we are as a global 'community'. Still, Halima leaves us with hope and awe in the face of her courage."-Mia Farrow, actor and advocate "Halima Bashir has bared her soul to help stop the bleeding of her people in Darfur. Attention must be paid."-John Prendergast, co-chair of the ENOUGH Project and co-author of Not on Our Watch: The Mission to End Genocide in Darfur and Beyond "A harrowing and beautifully written tale of a rich life, untold suffering, and impossible hope told from the heart of a fellow African sister. Read this as the tragedy that has overcome our long-suffering country, Sudan."-Mende Nazer, author of Slave "Halima's story is fantastic and exhausting, perhaps all the more so because I can see and hear and feel the people and places she describes. People need to be drawn into Darfur through stories like this, to cut through the statistics and the horror and to come back to the humanity-to families, love, hope, and courage and the normality of life in such abnormal circumstances."-Lisa French Blaker, author of Heart of Darfur "The genocide in Darfur has found its Anne Frank. The slaughter inflicted on the African peoples of western Sudan is one of modern Africa's darkest episodes but one Darfuri woman, HalimaBashir, rips through diplomatic compromise and political double-speak to lay bear Darfur's ghastly reality. A searingly frank testimonial of a war crime that deserves all our attention.'"-Tim Butcher, author of Blood River: A Journey to Africa's Broken Heart "Bashir, a physician and refugee living in London, offers a vivid personal portrait of life in the Darfur region of Sudan before the catastrophe . . . This is a vehement cri de coeur, but in showing what she suffered, and lost, Bashir makes it resonate.""-"Publishers Weekly
