I finally finished What is the What?, a novel written by Dave Eggers about the life story of Valentino Achak Deng, one of the famous Lost Boys of Sudan. It took me forever because it’s long and because I didn’t want to lug a big hardcover to Patagonia. Anyway, it’s a fantastic book—never a dull moment—and I highly recommend it to EVERYONE. And if you don’t want to read the book, at least check out Valentino’s website here. You can find out more about him and other Sudanese refugees there, as well as information about the Darfur conflict and what his foundation is doing to rebuild parts of Southern Sudan. For a taste of what life is like for the Lost Boys living in the U.S., rent the documentary The Lost Boys of Sudan.
