East of the Mountains 1ST Edition by David Guterson
East of the Mountains 1ST Edition

carolandandys, January 1, 2013

David Guterson is one of my favorite writers. The fact that his stories are centered in my beautiful home state of Washington makes almost feel as if they are my stories. I love his troubled characters and the way that the physical geography seems to echo a psychological geography of the soul. As the story of East of the Mountain unfolds, I found myself increasingly drawn to the main character and hoping and praying for a good outcome to a most challenging dilemma.

Catfish & Mandala: A Two-Wheeled Voyage Through the Landscape and Memory of Vietnam by Andrew X Pham
Catfish & Mandala: A Two-Wheeled Voyage Through the Landscape and Memory of Vietnam

carolandandys, August 4, 2012

I love this book! Andrew X Pham is able to give substance and meaning to his inner journey to make peace with his past while travelling through his homeland of Vietnam. His descriptions of the landscape and people he encounters is both dreamlike and lyrical. He provides an amazing sense of place in both the inner and outer landscape. This is a must read for any serious bibliophile.
