Bear Down, Bear North: Alaska Stories (Flannery O'&hellip by Melinda Moustakis
The only reason I haven't given this book 5 stars - which is a 2-3 books a year rating for me! - is that there's a little too much fishing and family abuse going on here. (I've only given it 3 stars on Goodreads, as the ratings there have other meanings than Amazon's).
BUT, theres a lot of really impressive and original writing (and great editing) here, some great stories, especially in the last part of the book, and some very original takes on the parent/child relationship, how you prepare your kids for life etc - so the first half of the book I'd probably give 2,5 stars, the last half amounts to 4 stars (how can you not love a story entitled "Mr. Furface Needs a Girlfriend"?)… Read more

Postcards from South Africa by Rayda Jacobs
Postcards from South Africa by Rayda Jacobs
A collection of interesting stories of life i South Africa, before and after the end of Apartheid.
You encounter some of the absurd dilemmas, situations and questions facing people:
What do you do for instance, if your aunt tries to have you circumcised while your mother is out, or if you're a mulatto and your car has been stolen, but the officers at the "white" police station tells you to go to a coloured police station and vice versa?

Although the issues and problems are serious, there's also room for humor and love, and I really enjoyed it.
