Nomad: From Islam to America: A Personal Journey Through the Clash of Civilisations
Ayaan Hirsi Ali is not a typical author that you can read with soothing music in the background. No, you have to sit up, because you will be ready to agree or disagree with her almost loudly.
I think that she is exactly what the Somali society, indeed, the African intellectual world needs: an uneasy truth-sayer. You might not agree with everything she says, but boy, she stings, and I love her for that. Hopefully she will help Africa emerge from the age of naive ressentiment.
Here's a review of her latest book, "Nomad" I look forward to reading the book.
