Quote of the Day: Dead Giveaway

Ayalew Yimam arrived in Addis Ababa in the late 1960s to go to university. “Outside, I came across a few young boys who carried lustro-shoeshine boxes. I turned to one of the boys and asked, ‘Where can I find books?’…. ‘Are you a university student?’ the second boy asked. ‘I'm going to start now.’ ‘Oh, communist books are in the alley that way,’ the first boy said.” (From Ayalew Yimam, Yankee Go Home)
