Review of While the Sun Is Above Us in Giraffe Days
“In While the Sun is Above Us we get a distinctly female story [of Sudan]. Considering that many of the accounts have been given by former Lost Boys who were given refugee status in places like America, the female perspective has largely been missing from the narrative. Adut fills that empty place admirably…. This is a deeply moving story that can’t fail to connect with you. It opens up a whole other world in more ways than one, shedding light on the life of a traditional Sudanese woman in the south as well as the female experience during the civil war.” Read the review.
