About this novel: This is the 3rd copy in my possession, of one of the best books I've ever read. 'Took it on a trip back in 2002, and couldn't put it down. I read it in 5 days. The hardships faced by the characters make the North American lifestyle look like a vacation. Some people say this is a depressing novel, but I found it uplifting - full of compassion, tenacity, empathy.
"A masterpiece of illumination and grace. Like all great fiction, it transforms our understanding of life " The Guardian (UK)
"This novel has the courage to remember and to reaffirm who we are, one by one; it continues, in the tradition of the great novels, to celebrate the luminous and unquenchable human spirit" The Globe and Mail

Picked up at last weekend's meetup at Harbord House Pub. Great seeing you, Bookgirrl!

I have read this wonderful book, so I am going to bring it to my book club to see if anyone is interested in it.
