My mom gave me this book and said you might like it but I didn't finish it.
AK covers lots of topics (from arranged marriages, to her trip to Japan seeking healing after being a prisoner, to their dog and neighborhood boys, to the election of a new Filipino president) all related to her stay in the Philippines in the 1950s. All pretty interesting though there wasn't much flow. AK is someone who over thinks things and as I am one who often under thinks its good to look into another's thoughts in another time and place.
