"I had always thought of America as a nation that looked forward; for the first time I was struck by its determination to look back."

I was moved by this book - by the narrator's perspective on a post-9/11 America, by his pursuit of love, and by the relevance this book holds in today's #political climate. I was left wanting to discuss Erica as a #metaphor for #America as well as Hamid's ending.

Justifying today's #bookhaul by pointing out that these are all generally short books and are therefore equivalent to having only purchased one, maybe two, long books. Fair, right? 📚📚😆😆 I think I will start with The Secret Life of Bees!
