EditionSo Many Things I Could Have Written
about the book
Asha grew up in Somalia, learning survival skills in a difficult environment. Though she had no formal education she supported herself and her family through running a trading business, with camels and trucks crossing deserts. She was an active member of the Somali National Movement which
opposed the military regime of Syad Barre. She was imprisoned twice but managed to escape and fled with her two young children to England, arriving as a refugee, speaking no English. Carried by her determination, her ability to tackle practical problems and a lively sense of humour, she made a new life for herself and her children.
This new edition includes a postscript by Asha bringing her book up to date.
