Doctor’s notes in running for John Llewellyn Rhys prize

(From the Guardian website:) A memoir by Canadian doctor James Maskalyk about the six months he spent working in a contested Sudanese border town is competing with Booker prize winner Aravind Adiga for this year’s John Llewellyn Rhys prize.

Maskalyk’s memoir, Six Months in Sudan, started life as a blog written from his hut in Abyei, Sudan in 2007, as he tried to tell his family and friends about his days working for Médecins Sans Frontières, treating malnourished children and staying out of the soldiers’ way.
