Thank the divinities, a decent writer moved to an organic farm and wrote a memoir. No more do we have to rely on New York Times magazine pieces that don't really understand, or longreads on the internet that don't have the wholesomeness of a book. Th...more

Great window into a formative time for Newfoundland. And the characters of this story were cool, if a little frustrating. Do we really spend our adult lives dealing with 1 or 2 events from childhood? I hope not.

The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck

This is everything I was from fiction: deeply religious, yet driven by a compelling story. There's a moment at the beginning, where Pi is confronted by his three spiritual mentors, a Catholic Priest, a Hindu Priest, and a devout Muslim baker. They're...more
