Currently Reading: The Return

I’m 21% through and I’m already recommending it. Hisham Matar has written two fiction works prior to this memoir.

It won a Pulitzer Prize. And yet the ‘readers’ on Amazon collectively decides (decided) that it’s only worth 3 stars. This is why I don’t care much for reviews.
