An unexpected arrival. I can't remember requesting this book in any forum, but it looks interesting, and I always take positive recommendations by you serious jubby, so am looking forward to this.
The accompanying book by Amitav Ghosh does not seem to have a BCID. Can you let me know what is is so I can journal that as well?

Another good read that found me through jubby! Thanks.
A very well written book that really makes you think about the adaptability of the human mind. It feels very true, which I think is remarkable for such an extreme story.
