Montréal fireworks are not always a pleasure of mine

[MONTRÉAL] I sit in my living room reading David Eggers’ What is the What, a fictionalized biography about Valentino Achak Deng, one of the Lost Boys from Sudan’s 21-year civil war. The war ended tenuously in 2005 with the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) between the Sudanese army in the north and the south’s Sudan People’s Liberation Army. It is 22h00 on a summer wednesday and the Montréal night is bombarded with firework blasts out of view from my comfortable living room sofa.
