If you’d like to see a video version of this book review, pop over to this page.
Homeland Elegies was certainly a thinker. Through a series of personal essays, the author Ayad Akhtar, author of Pulitzer Prize-winning play Disgraced, provides a striking meditation on what it is to be American and how we got to this place.
I’m sure my fellow writers can sympathize with this feeling, that my place is behind the written word, not in front of it. Which is why it was hard for me to 1. pull the trigger on video book reviews and why it is hard for me to 2. keep it consistent.
Alright guys, I’m going to change things up a little bit in moving forward with book reviews. As opposed to providing a 2-minute book review of each book I have read in a period of time, I’m going to provide a 2-minute overview on video of the books I read. If any of them strike your fancy, then you can go to blog posts, like this one, where I’ll provide a more thorough review in text. Sound good? Let me know what you think in the comments!
Books up this time around: Becoming, The Perfect Nanny, A Clash of Kings and Manage Your Day-to-Day. I hope you enjoy.
