Stayed up until 2:00 a.m., unable to put down Burned Alive until I'd finished it. One of those books that whallops your brain with a sledgehammer and rearranges your entire perspective ... one needs these reminders that, for all that we complain because we don't have perfect gender equality in the western world, we haven't a clue what REAL inequality is. Truly chilling stuff.
This morning, over orange juice and apple spice sausage, meandered through Luc and François Schuiten's The Hollow Grounds ... an odd and fascinating little trilogy of beautifully illustrated tales.
Now ***surveys to-read pile*** ... who's next ...?
