Book Review: Harvest of Hate: Stories and Essays: by John Carter.
It’s an old story. An immigrant comes to America to fulfill a lifelong dream, to live in the land of milk and honey. Then there’s the homesickness. And the dream, the promised land, is not only bathed in the sunshine of opportunity, but the shadows of reality as well. In 1990, a Sierra Leonean left the shores of Freetown for the promise of America. But soon Roland Marke – a former teacher with a knack for creative writing - was worrying about the folks back home in West Africa, struggling with his thick accent to get a job, wondering why his dream was beginning to feel nightmarish.
