Randolph W. Hobler has published his collective Peace Corps memoir 101 Arabian Tales: How We All Persevered in Peace Corps Libya. The book is unique in two ways. First, unlike the 1,000-plus Peace Corps individual memoirs published to date, his is a collective memoir. He interviewed 101 of his fellow Libyan Returned Peace Corps volunteers in depth for this effort. Second, the book includes 220 carefully-curated photographs.
“Randy Hobler has written the best memoir of a Peace Corps experience that I have ever read. His amazingly detailed book instantly grips the reader by putting Libya in its properly rich and unique historical perspective. It’s an unparalleled but eminently readable chronicle of a time and place lost forever.”
Former Ambassador to Equatorial Guinea, Cameroon, Madagascar and the Union of the Comoros
Peace Corps Volunteer-Zaire and Rwanda
“A magnum opus!” I must remark that the level of detail in terms of time, places and people is remarkable. This book does remind one how living in utter simplicity has beauty and how uncluttered time leads to clarity.”
Peace Corps Director, 1973-1974
The book has garnered 95% 5-star ratings from Amazon and GoodReads.
The book is available in paperback and Kindle versions from Amazon. More information
