Fieldwork

I just finished reading - or rather, listening to - a really wonderful book called Fieldwork. It's set in Thailand and is about missionaries and murder and obsession and finding and losing your place in the world. Because the protag's name is the same as the writer, I kept finding myself wondering if the story really was fiction. When I went to Wikipedia, I found this referenced. I'm sorry to hear it hasn't been promoted more because it's an absolute jewel. I've been listening on the way to and from work and I was sorely tempted to sit in car and listen to the last five minutes when I needed to go into the store tonight. But then again I didn't want to because I didn't want it to be over.

Fieldwork by Mischa Berlinski

Get to the library, the bookstore, Audible, somewhere, anywhere and find this book.
