Notes from the Hyena's Belly: An Ethiopian Boyhood
Bargain Book Copy
In a narrative sparkling with wit, Nega Mezlekia recalls his boyhood in Jijiga, Ethiopia during the fall of Emperor Selassie, and his bold journey to manhood during the rise to power of the communist Junta whose merciless Red Terror slaughtered 100,000 Ethiopian youths. Out of this sundrenched land where modern corruption rides ancient custom like a predator, Mezlekia crafts a world elegant in its aridity, extreme in its absurdity, and vast in its ironies.
