Been and Alula are appealing, convincing and complex characters who act as foils for one another, Blen in her fierce commitment to formal schooling, Alula in his equally strong desire for learning, but through unconventional means, outside what he sees as the limitations of a formal university education. “The Revelation” is a thought-provoking story about the importance of learning, the dream of youth to migrate to the West, and the virtue of forgiveness.
