  1. It's so nice to see these three back again. I highly recommend their previous works. "The Moor's Account" is a revelation.

  2. Carolyn Forche. What You Have Heard Is True: A Memoir of Witness and Resistance. A good place to start, as I see today we are officially sending asylum-seekers back to El Salvador while they wait for their asylum claims to be processed. I’m assuming Stephen ‘No Room at the Inn’ Miller never had to walk very far carrying everything he owned.

  3. I found “Fleishman Is in Trouble" to be very disappointing.
