Books of the Month – November 2009

Of course, I have to start with

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, a rich, horrible, nicely exotic (Swedish), convoluted mystery, followed by

Naming Nature, a fascinating history of how we organize plants and animals (trust me: it reads like a novel)

Dead Aid, a demonstration of how international government aid fails to help the people who need it most

Hands of my Father, a sweet portrait of a happy family — with two deaf parents
