I am reading a book about a Pakistani who is coming to terms with himself. He has worked in America and been paid well, but has now come home, post 9/11, having realised how his adopted country treats others.
And another novel about Prague, as authority re-asserts control after the Velvet Revolution, the Berlin Wall comes down, and Europe finds itself a different map to navigate by.
We are all afraid of the future.
I am getting used to being poor.
