Though I find this (again) a good selection, I hope for Faust in Copenhagen
or Fanny and Stella
to 'win'. The first is important is understand one's own modern history I think, and I am just downright curious for Fanny and Stella's story.
I will read Escape from Camp 14
, anyway, as I recently finished last month's MR-bookclub nomination about North Korea. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Orphan_Master's_Son
I will not read the excellent nomination of Stories of Rwanda
, as I saw a film about this genocide which made a huge impression on me. Heartbreaking. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hotel_Rwanda
