Civil War, Liberia, a carnage of our time.
Memoirs of a war fugitive, provides important insights into interlocking problems associated with politics and conflict in Liberia from a fugitive’s perspective. Embedded in the narratives are issues and concerns about children and women’s well-being in volatile situations The reporting style adopted in the book offers the reader an opportunity to see and in some cases paint graphic images of events taking place in a conflict zone. On the spot account, rumours and media are popular channels of reporting some of these events. It is interesting how the reader is placed in different positions to make sense of the accounts being reported. The imageries captured in artistic forms by the narrator are brilliant. But how could the narrator have taken photographs to justify his reportage in such a dangerous situation in which he found himself?
