Yes, these are scary times again, I'm sorry to say. And it's amazing how quickly things can go downhill. The book sounds fascinating. Thanks!

Yes, you have brought to light another good read. Plus a heroine that I have never heard of and I will look forward to reading more.

Thanks so much for a review of this book and for your thoughts, which are quite validating. I think the thing that is chilling to me is how casually, even at times with out of place humor, that basic underpinnings of our way of life are being capriciously changed or removed without a word of explanation or dissent; hence, the quote so apropos regarding "strange, ludicrous moments — that suggested [a] stage set for some grotesque comedy..."
I agree with Barbara H. that these are scary times. Just today, I signed on my support of Prof. Paul Krugman against an attempt to censure him as "unpatriotic" for writing his critical opinion.

This sounds like a fascinating story. Thank you for the recommendation, it is now on the list.
