it was amazing

Penelope Liverly won the Booker Award for this book, and it's the story of a non-academic historian who is telling the history of the world on her last day of life. The "Moon Tiger" of the story is, in essence, a spiral, and this is her image of history, particularly as she relives it in her dementia. It's brilliantly written and is, I think, the culmination of her fascination with history. I read this in the boundary waters on a layover day and was completely taken up with it.
