A Personal Viewpoint on The Land of My Father’s Birth: A Memoir of the Liberian Civil War
Written by Theodore Hodge

Theodore Hodge

I have been called upon this afternoon to give a literary perspective on Nvasekie Konneh's book, "The Land of My Father's Birth: A Memoir of the Liberian Civil War."

 

I will like to stress an important distinction here for our discussion. It is my understanding that in the case of a work of fiction, a literary perspective encompasses delving into such technical matters as mode of narration, plot development, character development, general style, etc. We are, therefore, not required here to give an analysis of the techniques of fiction writing.

 

This book (under discussion) is a memoir and thereby falls under the genre of non-fiction. In that regard, the perspective that forms the crux of the book is strictly the domain of the author's. Upon reading the work, a critic, or any reader for that matter, can express an opinion as to whether he likes or dislikes the work. I am on record of stating that I like the work and highly commend the author for his great effort of telling his personal story which has wider dimensions for our society.

Liberia: Corruption is Dangerous than Ebola!

Over the last few weeks, our dear nation, Liberia, has been attacked by the deadly Ebola virus. From all indications, we lack the capacity to counter the virus in a rapid and effective way. This is evidenced by the fact that we have not been able to mobilize $1.2 million USD as an emergency fund to fight the outbreak; we have sought international assistance to setup a laboratory; we have emigrated blood samples of our fellow countrymen/women who have been suspected of carrying the virus. The lack of a rapid response and our inability to contain the virus speak of the inefficiency of our national institutions. They are all obvious consequences of massive corruption and bad governance over the years. Millions of dollars are squandered annually through cloudy procurement processes, multinational transactions, bribery at the highest pillar of national lawmaking and the financing of public relations to create impressions abroad.
