Book Excerpt for the Day

    “Everyone in my village liked U2,” I said.  “Everyone in my country, maybe.  Wouldn’t that be funny, if the oil rebels were playing U2 in their jungle camps, and the government soldiers were playing U2 in their trucks.  I think everyone was killing everyone else and listening to the same music.  Do you know what?  The first week I was in the detention center, U2 were number one here too.  That is a good trick about this world, Sarah.  No one likes each other, but everyone likes U2.”
