« Being Liberal in a Plural World | Main | The View from Gaza »

February 18, 2009


"Either I was getting inured, or my mind was prepared for the shock, having encountered similar shocks earlier. Perhaps that mechanism reflects, in a small way, how people in the middle of it all managed to cope without losing their minds."

I wonder if it's the case that people who survive this sort of thing and come out somehow inured to violence actually have, in a sense, "lost their minds."

This was a great review, VP. I feel like I should read this book, but I don't know if I could get through it for all the graphic violence.
