2.5 stars really. I enjoyed the book, but it was slow-going. Not terrifically well-written but full of small insights and anecdotes and written with a lot of heart. Added depth to my own (much shorter) experience of also living with a Balinese family. It was fun to recognize cultural aspects and places from my time there.... but as a literary work.... so-so.
William Ingram has lived in Bali since 1993 where he is co-director of Threads of Life.More about William Ingram...
