Best Local Author Who Tells the Truth, the Whole Truth: Mark Bixler

Staff Pick

The thousands of young male refugees who fled genocide in Sudan, walking first to Ethiopia, then to Zaire, have been co-opted as the poster boys for just about any self-righteous movement that could spin some faint association around them with fairy tale revisions of their struggles. So kudos to Atlanta Journal-Constitution reporter MARK BIXLER for telling the whole story, with all its complexities and contradictions, in his book The Lost Boys of Sudan (Warner Brooks, $19.95), a rich study woven together by the life stories of several “lost boys” who immigrated to Atlanta.
