Love Africa A Memoir of Romance War and Survival Read & Download ç 108 Errifying exciting dreamlike part of the world in the throes of change that imprinted itself on his imagination and on his heartBut around that same time he also fell in love with a fellow Cornell student the brightest classiest most principled woman he’d ever met To say they were opposites was an understatement She became a criminal lawyer in America; he hungered to return t. Ok My first uestion how the hell did this guy win the Pulitzer prize I already did NOT like his reporting in the NYT which otherwise is generally one of my favourite publications As someone who lives and works in East Africa his reporting on the continent always seemed a tad paternalistic and simplistic or as he himself so aptly describes it in this book ooga booga African stories This book however not only confirms my underlying sentiments about him but takes them to a whole new level There were parts of reading this where I felt beyond cringe worthy and absolutely angry about the way he described the people and the countries he has encountered along the way So much so that I refuse to even highlight examples here He takes the notion of whit privilege so unapologetically far that it actually makes it seem he is not embarrassed about it at all Coupled with the fact that he comes across as a very unlikable arrogant stereotypical frat boy which is how he describes himself at the outset but never seems to be able to shake that aura as he grows up I always wondered whether it is the position that makes the people or unlikable people get the position The latter is definitely the case here there is not a moment in the book where I thought hey this is a person I would like to have a coffee with some day The absolute irony is that he uotes Kenyan writer Binyavanga Wainana s excellent piece on How to Write about Africa which really is a piece on how NOT to write about Africa and pretty much follows it to a tee As an East African I am upset that I spent any money on this book and reading it The only good thing is that he is now no longer the East Africa Bureau Chief for the NYT The bar is not particularly high for his successor

Love Africa A Memoir of Romance War and Survival Read & Download ç 108 A seasoned war correspondent Jeffrey Gettleman has covered every major conflict over the past twenty years from Afghanistan to Ira to the Congo For the past decade he has served as the East Africa bureau chief for the New York Times fulfilling a teenage dreamAt nineteen Gettleman fell in love twice On a do it yourself community service trip in college he went to East Africa a t. In July of 1996 I and 21 of my fellow church members traveled to Kenya on a mission trip Aside from short stays in both Nairobi and Mombasa we spent most of the month in a tiny town called Kibwezi We had running water but no electricity and because it was 1996 none of us had laptops or cell phones Honestly it rather boggles my mind that my parents let me go so many thousands of miles away with no ability to make sure I was okay most of the time I totally understand why Gettleman has fallen so completely in love with Kenya Twenty years later and I still find my ears perk up at the mention of that captivating country I remember seeing Mt Kilimanjaro through the haze elephants and lions and giraffes roaming around Tsavo Game Park the incredibly blue Indian Ocean off the coast of Mombasa watching the barefoot boys playing soccer in the dust and the dirt of the polytechnic where we were staying drinking hot chai and eating chapati at the 10am tea break hearing the howls of the monkeys at night and seeing the impossibly bright stars just over our heads But I had not realized how the election of 2007 had torn the country apart Kenya had felt so far away by then and I was a wife and a mother to a young child We d just moved across the country from Washington to Rhode Island Gettleman brings it all to life again it s like my visit was last month not twenty years agoThis is most definitely a memoir It even says so in the title which is why I m a bit confused about some reviewers feeling it was too much about Gettleman and not enough about Africa But it s a love letter not just to Africa but also to his wife who has stood by him even when he didn t deserve her Gettleman is brutally honest about his failings and shortcomings about his inability to stay true to Courtenay even though he loved her above all else his failure to rein in his selfishness and that s perhaps why some people are put off by this book I suppose they d prefer a bit of a dashing hero not a flawed and honest Everyman This book is so much important than simply as Gettleman s coming of age story Here we see through the eyes of a man with boots on the ground the insane mistakes the United States has made in Ira Afghanistan Somalia Kenya It s difficult to delude ourselves that we are always the heroes of the day after reading this book and for that reason I d like everyone I know to read the sections on Gettleman s reporting of these warsHighly recommended
