Read how children of afghanistan suffered from the criminal behavior of their elders. I am author of book " Afghanistan A Volatile Country" which will help u in knowing about a tribal society. i am afghan by heritage. My forefathers migrated to Pakistan from afghanistan. I am working as a lecturer in a university in Islamabad which is capital city of Pakistan. In 1980s i remained in touch with the afghan resistance against Soviet occupation of afghanistan. This is a country which is never being ruled by any foreign force. British also failed to break their defense line. Pakistan hosted millions of afghan refugees. I am an insider and not like those journalists who come and stay for some days and go back and write book with specific picture in their mind and they do not know what is happening in the streets and what pain a common man is going through. I also discussed women issues in this country. The book is available from amazon.com
Wanted to let you know about my book about my life working on a cruise ship. Permanent Passenger: My Life on a Cruise Ship is getting great reviews, making lots of people laugh and moving up the lulu ranks. You can see more at: www.permanentpassenger.com
I am starting to present the book at book clubs and it sells in several bookstores in San Francisco. Crazy stories about how I landed my dream job, romance at sea, the secret life of crewmembers. I think you will get a kick out of the book
Lilaphase, I just noticed that you chose The Curious Incident of the Dog at Night-time as one of your favorites. I also loved this book. I bought it when it first came out and lent it to one of my colleagues. The book ended up circulating among quite a number of people. I work at a graduate school of education. Needless to say, the book had particular significance to quite a number of people.
