Read by the author, a memoir of growing up in Afghanistan as the son of an Afghan father and American mother. The mother and her children later move to San Francisco. Ansary wrote a passionate email after 9/11, pointing out that the Afghans were as much victims as the occupants of the World Trade Center. He later travels to Afghanistan, in search of his roots.
I listened to this audio book some years ago, and it helped me understand Afghanistan, its history, and probable future. I especially enjoyed the author's account of his travels through North Africa and the Middle East.

Jan 24 2016......I just started listening to this while doing some mindless computer work. I found the first 4 tracks very moving. Why have I not heard of this book before? I went to the library site to see what comments had been made about this book.....no comments. What? Well, this will be on my next list, and I hope to see more comments on here in the future. I certainly know a few people that I will be recommending this book/audiobook to, and that is just after listening to 4 tracks!......Feb 1. My partner is listening to this, and I find myself unable to stop eavesdropping and finish the book that I am working on. Life in Afghanistan, if you want to know what it's like, this is the book for you, then, I miss a disc or two, and his adventures in Algiers and Tunis are both humorous and frightening at the same time. I may have to postpone my book?
