I recently picked up a copy of Hisham Matar's In the Country of Men. It's a touching story that seems loosely autobiographical about a young boy whose father has been disappeared by the Libyan regime under Gadaffi. I'm only about 85 pages in, but I've been enjoying it a lot, if enjoying is the right word for reading about a child's pain in a repressive police-state.
In any case, I grew curious of Matar and his life, so I started looking him up online and came across this wonderful little piece about his father's abduction and disappearance. I won't extract any of it, because you should read it in its entirety.
