2996 I just finished Two Under the Indian Sun by Jon Godden and her sister Rumer. It made me feel nostalgic for a childhood I never had (India was so exotic and so different from prairie Canada) and scandalized about the casual discrimination and sense of privilege the English had in that time.

2996 Finished The Lizard Cage by Karen Connelly a little while ago and can't stop thinking about it. Such a powerful book. So many big ideas told simply and directly.

2996 This book had a huge impact on me when I was very young. Have reread it and it stands the test of time. Will read again for this discussion.

2996 I just finished Peace Meals: Candy-Wrapped Kalashnikovs and Other War Stories by Anna Badkhen. Excellent reporting on Afghanistan, Iriaq, Iran, Somalia. She finds the humanity amid the conflict.
