The main reasons why I was left slightly disappointed were associated with the complicatedness of the plot - starting with the killing of a high-class prostitute, continuing with the disappearance of two other girls she knew, then taking in various posh families, dodgy development deals, switched identities, Eastern European plots. It was all too complicated, imho, and lost me somewhere in the middle. It was still a good read, and many would enjoy it, but I was just slightly put off by some of this.
I was also, slightly oddly, irritated by bad kerning - one of the main characters was called 'Tchancov', but this was printed every time as 'T chancov'.

An odd think to irk me, but it irked me every time. Apr 15, Sandra rated it liked it Shelves: read Entertaining as this was - and it was - it was hard to entirely believe in any of the characters. Even Staffe at times seemed too chaotic to be credible. As usual, I wasn't trying too hard to work out what was happening, or who had done what to who, and am also aware that the rich Russians described might be familiar sights in parts of London but are not usually seen around my neck of the woods, which maybe added exotic but increased distance.
But definitely entertaining. Which is why I read. Dec 10, Rose Maureen rated it it was amazing. Another brilliant read of Murder and Mystery, once started. Apr 09, Miki Jacobs rated it it was amazing. I'm really enjoying this series. Oct 05, Steve rated it it was ok. Not bad but I won't be reading the rest of the series Sep 17, mari rated it it was ok.
Waste of time.
Like a natural woman: why taboos about discussing the female body are dying
Dec 29, Sarah Sunday rated it it was ok. Very boring writing style and plot. Felt sophomoric. No more Staffe books for me. How can we love in the absence of faith? In a heartbreaking yet hopeful collection of personal essays and prose poems, blending the confessional, political, and literary, acclaimed poet and essayist Kai Cheng Thom dives deep into the questions that haunt social movements today. With the author's characteristic eloquence and honesty, I Hope We Choose Love proposes heartfelt solutions on the topics of violence, complicity, family, vengeance, and forgiveness.
Taking its cues from contemporary thought leaders in the transformative justice movement such as adrienne maree brown and Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha, this provocative book is a call for nuance in a time of political polarization, for healing in a time of justice, and for love in an apocalypse.
Kai Cheng Thom is a writer, performance artist, and psychotherapist in Toronto. Salman Rushdie "Quichotte". Wise, beautifully written, as heartbreaking as it is wildly comic, its characters unforgettable, its plot dazzlingly suspenseful, it illuminates our corrupt times where fact is so often indiscernible from fiction. Quichotte, an aging travelling salesman obsessed with TV, is on a quest for love.
Unfortunately, his daily diet of reality TV, sitcoms, films and soaps has distorted his ability to separate fantasy from reality. He wishes an imaginary son, Sancho, into existence, while obsessively writing love letters to a celebrity he knows only through his screen. Together the two innocents set off across America in Quichotte's trusty Chevy Cruze to find her and convince her of his love. Quichotte's story is told by Sam DuChamp, a mediocre spy novelist in the midst of a midlife crisis, and as the stories of DuChamp and Quichotte intertwine, we are taken on a wild, picaresque journey through a familiar country on the edge of moral and spiritual collapse.
Joan Kuyek "Unearthing Justice".

But, most importantly, the book shows how people are fighting back. Whether it is to stop a mine before it starts, to get an abandoned mine cleaned up, to change laws and policy, or to mount a campaign to influence investors, Unearthing Justice is an essential handbook for anyone trying to protect the places and people they love.
Joan Kuyek is a community-focused mining analyst and organizer living in Ottawa.

Flights are grounded throughout Europe. Dessie, a cosmopolitan flight attendant from Canada, finds herself stranded in Addis Ababa — her birth place. Grieving her mother's recent death, Dessie heads to see her grandfather, the Shaleqa — compelled as much by duty as her own will. But Dessie's conflicted past stands in her way. Just as the volcano's eruption disordered Dessie's work life, so too does her mother's death cause seismic disruptions in the fine balance of self-deceptions and false histories that uphold her family. As Dessie reacquaints herself with her grandfather's house, familiar yet strangely alien to her diasporic sensibilities, she pieces together the family secrets: the trauma of dictatorship and civil war, the shame of unwed motherhood, the abuse met with silence that gives shape to the mystery of her mother's life.
Reminiscent of the deeply immersive writing of Taiye Selasi and Arundhati Roy, Rebecca Fisseha's Daughters of Silence is psychologically astute and buoyed both by metaphor and by the vibrant colours of Ethiopia. It's an impressive debut. Visit lula. In a variety of forms ranging from lyrics to list poems to found poetry to hybrid works, these authors express themselves with the complexity, agency, and honesty that sex workers are rarely afforded. As an antidote to the invasive and often biased media depictions of sex workers, Hustling Verse is a fiercely groundbreaking exploration of intimacy, transactional sex, identity, healing, and resilience.
