What do you recommend?

Jennifer Schatten

“I would recommend House in the Sky by Sara Corbett and Amanda Lindhout. It’s a memoir about a young, aspiring fearless traveler who got abducted in Somalia for a few months. She had horrific encounters that she talks about with the most exquisite grace and perspective. . . . I don’t know how you make a harrowing story so uplifting.”

Elizabeth Gilbert, author of The Signature of All Things and Eat, Pray, Love
