How good is this book? I started it late at night, having finished Cracked, and got very little sleep.

Lexicon1982 One of the best books I‘ve read this year! Great strong female character and great plot! 1w
tournevis Haven't read it yet, but hearing her gush about doing research for this, talking to actual astronauts, mathematicians and Nasa engineers, is a blast! 1w

Read for #readharder2019. Smuggled out as WhatsApp messages, the book is a mythic, poetic, harsh close up look of life in Manus Prison. The author is a Kurdish asylum seeker locked up for no crime.

Lauredhel @JennyM I haven't read it yet! I'm very behind. Not sure if I'll read this one till I can get it in ebook, the trade paperback is a bit bulky for me (but pretty). 2mo

Some parts of this book seem to engage in a fair bit of cultural appropriation ("here's my take on Mongolian style folk art!"), but some of the pictures are pretty. I'm conflicted, and can't help thinking there could have been a better way.
