Good Trouble by Joseph O'Neill
I picked up this book during Christmas break and thanks to no mobile phone reception on the London tube I had the opportunity to finish the book resonably speed.
The book consists several stories.
The first one Pardon Edward Snowden was constructed with some poems.
One particular quote I liked:
It is assumed that the writers first allegiance is to language. This is false. The writers first allegiance is to silence.
The other story I liked was The Trusted Traveler, two retirees academic can never escaping from some referral request even from someone who they had hardly engaged before. This seems to happened to our career life too.
The best part of the story I like was about a couple dealing with infertility. How humanity the husband felt every time he visited the client in order to produce quality sperms as a real classic.
Overall, I enjoyed reading this book.
