Reports about the Sudan are often critical and harsh, and it is easy to equate the people of the Sudan with their government's policies. By contrast, the stories in Every Day But Not Some offer a more positive view of what life is like for the ordinary Sudanese. The author spent 22 years in Sudan and draws from a vast range of relationships and experiences to tell the untold side of the individual people and cultures of the Sudan. This collection of stories reveals how learning another culture is rather like walking around in an unfamiliar house in the dark. You don't know where anything is until you bump into it, sometimes gently, sometimes painfully. All the while, you are desperately looking for a light switch in hopes of being able to see more clearly. Here is a candid, entertaining and informative look at life in the Sudan.
