Fiction: General/Other
A historical novel (hearing in 2006 about 1994 torture) about how a junior woman attorney and a 2nd generation African torture survivor manage a hearing against a torture doctor. It explores the reasons for torture doctors, their work, impunity, and various kinds of human rights advocacy. Three closing stories tell of the transformation of the two women and of the doctor. Vivid setting in Senegal. Emphasis on the story--not a procedural. Map. 73,000 words.
