This month we’ll read the 2013 Reading Across Rhode Island selection: The Beauty of Humanity Movement by Camilla Gibb (published in 2011).
Gibb’s fictional portrait of contemporary Vietnam should be essential reading for anyone mulling a visit to Hanoi, whose profusion of motorbike traffic and culinary aromas issues from these pages with graphic verisimilitude. Gibb uses the city’s street food and thriving art scene to reflect both continuity and change, particularly as experienced by her three central characters. (Jan Stuart’s editorial review on bn.com)
