Bargain Book Copy


In October 2008, Mellissa Fung, a reporter for CBC's The National, was leaving a refugee camp outside of Kabul when she was kidnapped by armed men. She was forced to hike for several hours through the mountains until they reached a village; there, the kidnappers pushed her towards a hole in the ground. "No," she said. "I am not going down there." For twenty-eight days, Mellissa Fung lived in that hole, which was barely big enough to stand up or lie down in, nursing her injuries, praying, writing in her notebook and, as a veteran journalist, interrogating her own captors. Under an Afghan Sky is the gripping tale of Fung's days in captivity, during which she survived mainly on cookies and juice, and it details her ordeal from the "grab" to her eventual release.
