    Hardcover✓ My Parents MOBI ç parents kindle, My Parents ePUBI recently read a 2002 article by sociologist Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak that describes a humanities education as “an uncoercive rearrangement of desires” Aleksandar Hemon's latest work fulfilled exactly this purpose for me transforming my desire to be entertained into self reflection what can I a product of consumer capitalism learn from those who were raised in another system How do I balance nostalgia and the striving for a better future with a grounding in the presentAleksandar Hemon

    Hardcover✓ My Parents MOBI ç parents kindle, My Parents ePUBThis biographyautobiography is divided into two halves The first is the story of Hemon’s parents and their forced flight from Sarajevo to Canada in the 1990s due to the Bosnian War It’s an affectionate insightful and loving account of them and their bravery and resourcefulness in adapting to a new life in a new country is vividly depicted The second half of the book is a rather rambling memoir of Hemon’s own childhood and youth in Sarajevo and an exploration of the nature of memory and remembering I didn’t find this part as engaging and felt it was too disjointed and impressionistic Overall however the book as a whole is enjoyable and interesting and I gained from it an added in
