64 x 35 (A Constellation of Vital Phenomena)

I just finished A Constellation of Vital Phenomena. It's a book that somehow transcends whatever might be said by way of paraphrase or analysis. It's relentlessly detailed about the horrors of village life in wartime Chechnya and yet compassionate and lyrical about the lives of the people who have had to endure those horrors, and builds to a moving and affirmative conclusion. Good book.
