Gift of Incense: A Story of Love and Revolution in Ethiopia
Red Sea Press, 2005 - Biography & Autobiography - 303 pages
This book chronicles a unique twentieth century story, the emigration to Ethiopia in the early 1960s of Judy Linder and of her marriage to African musician Abubajer Ashakih. What emerges is not simply a personal memoir but also a living picture of a unique time and place in East Africa before it was forever changed by revolution and famine. The reader, especially the Western reader, shares through the life story of Abubaker the lives of a remarkable group of Ethiopian and Eritrean people in a country that had found a way to balance Muslim and Christian traditions.
