When the poet Carolyn Forché was 27 years old, a man she‘d never met knocked on her door and asked her to come to his country, El Salvador, and witness “another Vietnam from the beginning.” She did. This memoir of that harrowing and eye-opening and worldview-altering experience is an incredible and vital read.

1. NYC, probably Central Park, on a bench.
2. My family is invited
3. In my basket is pizza, bagels, a pstrami sandwich….all the food I miss from NYC because food where I live is nothing special.

I‘ve had a hard time getting into the jibe of this read but seem to be finding my groove. I‘ve actually been in the same chapter for two weeks (!) not being able to read through. But I will finish!

I really wasn‘t sure what to expect from this book; from the blurb I wondered if it might be too ‘literary‘ for me, but it definitely wasn‘t.

This is a very immersive, dark memoir as the author traces the history of a long-gone Irish poet, translating her work, whilst dealing with her own challenges of motherhood.

It‘s very unusual, not like anything I‘ve read before and I really enjoyed it.

Thanks for gifting it to me! @Cathythoughts 😘

Cinfhen Gorgeous photo! Sounds great 😊 1d

Simona I really liked this book. Unique in the form and touching in the content. First a read it and after that I listened audiobook narrated by Siobhan McSweeny and listening was even deeper experience. Audiobook is available on Scribd, if you are subscriber. 1d
LeahBergen What a pretty photo! 1d
squirrelbrain I tried to match the cover to a plant…. I don‘t have a hydrangea (I think that is what is on the cover) but the photinia is flowering and I thought it looked pretty similar! @Cinfhen @Cathythoughts @LeahBergen 1d
