The editors of C Liberia Clearly choose the best fiction and nonfiction Liberian books of 2018.
Monrovia Rain and Other Stories Lost and Found offers moving perspectives on day-to-day life in the throes, and in the aftermath, of the civil war that affected every Liberian in some way. The authors portray tension within families, the hustle out on the streets, the plight of street children, the exploitation of young women, and the continuous search for answers and closure. This short but powerful collection, along with the authors’ reflections on their stories, will help you understand the people who lived through the conflict just a little bit more.
Under Ducor Skies mirrors life in its various forms—love, growth, adventure, everyday happenings and experiences of people, near and far - known and unknown. You’ll be entertained, inspired, provoked, and pushed to think beyond the layers of what seems ordinary. It is a voyage of dreamers and wanderers, who’ve held onto the tattered threads of their dreams; pushing beyond limitations and challenges, to make something of themselves. Readers will be given a front row seat into Ducor, the city of dreams, through the authors’ lens. They’ll enjoy the openness, depth, vulnerability, and ease with which she shares each poem. Together, they’ll open old scars, mend wounds, laugh, cry, heal and rise.
