“You tie empty Coke and Sprite bottles around your waist in order to float in the water; you line up tattered shoes as goalposts when you play football; and you figure out how to get an animal to the third floor. But you don’t give up on culture and tradition, particularly when they bring you good luck.”

–Shoba Narayan

Book No. 18 of 2018

This book was a bit like a This American Life episode, minus the fact that it wasn’t really American at all. I went back and forth between thinking that cows were way more fascinating than I would’ve ever guessed, and wondering if the story had any direction or point at all.
