About

I am an avid (but sadly no longer voracious) reader and I like to think I can write well enough so I thought I would create yet another blog of book reviews…because we need more of those don’t we?

I am fascinated by the human story, especially  those of the  marginalized and neglected. I try to read books from every conceivable corner of the globe, books with characters from every strata of society, and books translated from unlikely languages.

Which is why I spend an unhealthy amount of time searching for unique book recommendations. Because, tragically, the kind of narratives I’m drawn to are not popular and won’t be on the New York Times best seller list. And that’s a good thing.
