26 Jan 2008- Bookends

Rachel, a successful 30-something production assistant living in LA, looks back on her time in an ashram in India, worshipping an incarnation of God who died before she got there, living among a group of damaged and frankly odd people, trying to fit in at a school where the teachers beat her and the kids threw stones at her…

Not so much a misery memoir as a clear-sighted look back at the madness of it all. She comes to terms with her mother’s actions, shows what she has learnt, and credits certain people with encouraging her writing career.

Engaging and different.

I won’t be re-reading, but will register and offer on a BookRay.
