One of the most important books of the decade, in my opinion. Hochschild tries to cross the "empathy wall" and understand how the American political scene became so divided. Fascinating subject, wonderful writing.
“Tin Man” is a beautiful telling of friendship and love. Matt Haig’s review hits the nail right on the head. Winman’s characters are human in the best sense of the word. A quick but worthwhile read.
Based on the true story of a forgotten hero, “Beneath a Scarlet Sky” is the triumphant, epic tale of one young man’s incredible courage and resilience during one of history’s darkest hours.
