Mawi Asgedom brings authenticity to the narration of his memoir, whether he's telling stories of the hardships his family endured while escaping a war or talking about moving to a new country and overcoming difficulties in assimilating there. Illuminating the lessons he learned from his father, his faith, and his culture, Mawi provides a vivid picture of a young man who faces prejudice and tragedy by treating all people as angels--even though they are frequently disguised as beetles. As narrator, Asgedom gives his father a natural-sounding Ethiopian/Eritrean accent, which adds to the flow of the narrative. A large amount of back matter, including a lengthy section of acknowledgments, follows the story. E.J.F. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2021]
