About Aher Arop Bol
Aher Arop Bol (Santino Bol) was born in a Dinka village in the Bahr el Ghazal region of Southern Sudan. The journey described in The Lost Boy is the author’s own.
Bol now lives in Pretoria. He runs a spaza shop which enables him to pay his UNISA fees (he is studying law) and maintain his two brothers, with whom he has been reunited, at a boarding school in Uganda.
