    Alexandra Fuller won worldwide attention, popular acclaim, and critical accolades for her memoir of her childhood in Africa, Don’t Let’s Go to the Dogs Tonight. This engaging follow-up explores Fuller’s parents’ childhoods and charts the trajectories of their lives through all the British couple’s experiences in war-torn Africa. With the same sharply etched narrative that has earned the author such immense praise, Fuller expands on and offers new insights into her family’s remarkable trials and successes.

    Story
    (1734)

    We are accustomed to think of sociopaths as violent criminals, but in The Sociopath Next Door, Harvard psychologist Martha Stout reveals that a shocking 4 percent of ordinary people, one in 25, has an often undetected mental disorder, the chief symptom of which is that that person possesses no conscience. He or she has no ability whatsoever to feel shame, guilt, or remorse. One in 25 everyday Americans, therefore, is secretly a sociopath.

    This book wasn't what I thought it would be. I expected to learn more about the mind of a sociopath - but honestly, I just didn't finish it.

    An enigmatic young man employed as a trash-out worker in Florida, obsessively photographing thousands of abandoned objects left behind by the evicted families. A group of young people squatting in an apartment in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. The Hospital for Broken Things, which specializes in repairing the artifacts of a vanished world. A celebrated actress preparing to return to Broadway. These are just some of the elements Auster magically weaves together in this immensely moving novel.

    Story

    I belong to a book club and many of the members didn't like the book. Two of the most avid readers in the group said they just couldn't get into it - they tried.

    On impulse I went to see the movie (in French) with one of these two women. OMG she LOVED it.

    So my conclusion is this story needs a performance or a very zen reader.
