Mitchell Jackson Reviews Radiance of Tomorrow by Ishmael Beah

Radiance of TomorrowVerdict: carrot

The American dream was born of Europeans immigrating to a new home, one free from oppression and ripe with opportunity. The characters in Ishmael Beah’s affecting debut novel, Radiance of Tomorrow (Sarah Crichton Books), also dream of a home – though for them the dream means reclaiming Imperi, Sierra Leone, the tiny village that sustained them for generations, now in the grip of inexorable change. And therein lies the conflict that will make you care about what happens to them.
