The novel tells the story of Tsomo, a Bhutanese woman, from childhood to elderly years. It tackles all the life events - siblings, growing up, rituals, death, marriage, employment, journeys, religious practice, etc. Tsomo finds herself on a journey for blessings from several lamas once she decides her marriage has brought her into a place of bad karma and that is the majority of the book. ⤵️

ReadingEnvy And just like I like in a book I'm reading to learn about another place, there is a lot about food and ritual and societal structures/differences between the Bhutanese themselves but also between the Bhutanese and the surrounding groups. ⤵️ 1mo
ReadingEnvy As far as I can tell, this is written in English, not translated from another language. Even so there are too many commas at times, and not enough other times, and a few other grammatical errors in this printing. I suspect that is the price you pay when you try to read a book from every country. 1mo

This is my #bookhaul from the local consignment shop. Anyone read any of these? They are all new to me, although I‘ve wanted the Miranda July book, No One Belongs Here More Than You, for some time.

Crazeedi Oh.my.goodness...you just picked three of my absolute favorite series. Donna Leon. The first one is this, but they are all excellent!!! 5mo
BlameJennyJane @Crazeedi really? I@have the book you tagged on Kindle and it sounds SO GOOD but I haven‘t read it yet. I left like 5 in the series behind at the store. Now I wonder if I should go back. I‘ve never heard anyone mention them before but your endorsement makes me want to jump right in. The descriptions sound awesome! 5mo
BlameJennyJane @Crazeedi I meant to ask... should I read the series in order? 5mo

Crazeedi @BlameJennyJane absolutely get all the books of series that you can!!!! And I always recommend reading in order, the character development and settings are developed in a wonderful way. There are like 28 books in this series I think. I spent a summer just gobbling them up one after another. If you enjoy Italian cuisine, quirky characters and mysteries that don't always end good guy wins bad guy loses, you will enjoy 5mo
BlameJennyJane @Crazeedi I went back today and grabbed all I‘d left behind yesterday! 28 is a lot but I‘ve got a good start on my collection. I absolutely love Italian cuisine, quirky characters and a good mystery! Thank you! 5mo
Crazeedi @BlameJennyJane you wont he sorry, it's my favorite series ever, brunetti is the best. They get better as you go! 5mo
BlameJennyJane @Crazeedi I‘m very excited! Thank you! 5mo

#OurSharedShelf #OSS Quite a unique read with a touch of true maliciousness wrapped in an emotional truth telling sheath. Also a bit of a comic book but I mean that in the most complimentary way. A violent, raw, charming, witty coming of age as trans tale. How did she squeeze it all into this light little package?

Writing my reflection on this week‘s reading for queer and trans writing, maybe a lil punchy after a long week (Lemon, it‘s Wednesday). My note here: “just @ me next time, Kai Cheng”

The second blurb on this book starts, “The first lie is that this book is a memoir, the second is that it is not.“
Similarly, this summary is an accurate description of the book I just read, and also wildly not. This is a kind of storytelling that comes from the depths of a cultural conscience, too big for these pages and yet perfectly wrapped in this little package. Highly recommend. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

“I never thought about that before, that being kind is a brand of violence all its own.”
