Example text

I dropped the third pebble on the northern border with Eritrea, and the fourth on Lalibela. Then I placed another on Gondar, once Ethiopia’s seat of imperial power, and home to the Ethiopian Jews. That was five. Where else? The sound of guide-dogs mauling a newly arrived traveler distracted me for a moment. I glanced at the map again.

The Bible can be deciphered in many ways, with an interpretation often hanging on the precise meaning of a single word. For that reason I chose to use the Septuagint version, the earliest known translation of the Old Testament.
