The Moor's Account
Are you familiar with either author, these two books? Please tell me what you think -- am I lucky, or what?
Please tell us the authors your Secret Santa selected for you. If you want to tell us what authors you chose for your Santee, we'd be glad to hear about them, too. After all, how better to add to our teetering TBR piles?
The second book is not Gain and I have to admit I'm glad because the replacement choice is Amitav Gosh's, Sea of Poppies. Imagine, a novel with a 40pp glossary at the end of it!
Both authors are new to me, but both of their books are exactly the kind of literature that I enjoy reading. I'm so happy to get them! Lalami is Morroccon by birth and American by choice. Who better to write a tale of exploration of the New World by a Muslim Moor on expedition as a slave among the Spaniards?
Can't say anything about Sea of Poppies} because I haven't tarted reading it. Wait and see. . .
