I won this book from the First Reads giveaway. Thanks!
Burying the Typewriter was not what I expected. I assumed it would be faster paced, with more drama and intrigue. It turned out to be more of a stylistic look at the author's childhood. It was a beautiful read.
There were several people that stood out apart from Bugan herself. I loved the foul-mouthed grandmother, the priest who "unknowingly" destroyed some equipment the government was using to spy on the family, and Bombonica, the protective dog.
