Maybe links to videos referred to in the book. I spent about an hour looking up videos on YouTube after I was done crying over your book.

At a grocery store in Berlin and a German guy comes up to me and asks me what country I’m from. I tell him I’m American, and of course, he replies, “No, your *real* country.” Sigh. 🙄 At least I’m used to this.

I love it so far! But it’s not exactly light reading. He’s such a master stylist and I learn so much from him. I’ve taught *Black Swan Green* and while my students found it too dark, I really enjoyed it. Let me know what you think of it!

When I’m up at 3am with jet lag, I’m reading this marvelous book. Few writers can do voice like David Mitchell. He’s one of those writers whose prose is so precise and detail-rich, I can only feel fortunate that I get to read his books.

Berlin has some of the best street art I’ve seen. Trekking through the city with six kids is surprisingly easy when there’s so much art to distract one’s attention from jet lag and fatigue.
