Just a heads up and a plug for the brand-spankin’ new Warwick’s blog: I have a new review over there on Dave Eggers’ Zeitoun. Check it out, yo.
“Eggers writes with a simple, straight forward grace, skipping the looming soapbox completely and offering a concise chronicle of Zeitoun’s experiences in all their horror and inhumanity. Dare I say, a heartbreaking work of…well, if not genius, then satisfying competency. As I read this book, I quite literally had to keep reminding myself that this story actually took place in the United States of America of the 21st-century and not war-torn Sierra Leone or some other awful place.”
