BUTTERFLIES OF UGANDA: MEMORIES OF A CHILD SOLDIER

  • Gerhard Van Zyl Department of Languages and Culture, Faculty of Military Science, University of Stellenbosch

Abstract

"I was conceived in rape."[i] At least for this reviewer, this is one of the most powerful, hard-hitting opening lines of any book he has read to date. Moreover, from there this powerful text continues to hold the reader captive, and refuses to allow him or her to fall back in a slumber of indifference. [i] Opening line of Butterflies of Uganda.
