By complete coincidence, I recently reviewed two books written by authors with impressive histories of political and environmental activism.
Luis Sepúlveda‘s life story is one of breath-taking courage and adventure so it’s hardly any wonder that his book for children, The Story of a Snail Who Discovered the Importance of Being Slow inspires individual thinking and heroism.
I thought this was a fine story to read to young childrem. Read my review here.
Arundhati Roy‘s new book, The Ministry of Utmost Happiness, was heralded as the most anticipated book of the decade. As one who was bowled over by The God of Small Things, I dived into this with high hopes. Read my review here.
What are you reading at the moment? I’d love to know.
Also, anyone know who stole the summer?
