Summary

Summary

A broken artist has to explain the Afghan Constitution to the overwhelmingly illiterate population through comic books featuring the adventures of a war orphan. He has about 24 hours to catch up on the history, politics, customs, problems, and the Constitution of a country he knows nothing about. Also, Kabul is kinda freaky people get kidnapped, it s cold as hell, and the threat of violence is omnipresent. Wild brilliantly explores the differences between the Afghan cultures around him and his own.
