AFRIKULT.’S OVERALL RATING:
In the dark pits of civil warfare, Chris Abani mimes a human poetry; of love and redemption. My Luck, a twelve- year- old boy recounts his travails as a child soldier tasked with the perilous job of a mine detector. Through his journey across the wretched terrain of human wreckage and ruin, we hear the cries of the human soul as it yields to the lust of hate and violence. Brewed with such lyrical clairvoyance and acute sensibility, Song For Night is an evocative tale of human fragility.
