SWR2 Magazine is a worth-read including the new book by TC Boyle – SWR2

With books by T. C. Boyle, David Graeber, David Wingro, Whitty Ihimaira, Olivier Guy, Fabrice Tarin, Felix Leigh, and Thilo Diefenbach.

California dries up while Florida sinks. Such is the bleak situation in TC Boyle’s new environmental novel, Blue Skies.

Help is coming! In their book Beginnings, David Graeber and David Wingro show how people can control crises.
A strong reading recommendation from American author Isabel Fargo Cole!

“One university – one book”: This summer, the University of Mainz is trying out the New Zealand sea fairy tale “Whalerider”.Great read. Mainz book researcher Ank Vogel explains the procedure.

Unfortunately Failed: The New Adventure of Asterix and Obelix. This time the two are “in the Middle Kingdom”. Historically incorrect, poorly spoken and hardly illustrated. Compassion!

Engineer Wenpo Lee brought Volkswagen to China. Felix Lee, Jr. and journalist, tells this story in: “China, My Father and Me.” How a billion people were motorized. Hear Felix talk to me.

Finally, two poems about the island of Taiwan. Taken from the charming and comprehensive Taiwan anthology “Between Heaven and Sea”.
