I think that my favorite part of that book is that the name of the hypothetical Bangladeshi child making shoes in a factory is "bad shoe" in Bengali.

How to write "Xahar" in Bengali alphabet? (I'm asking because "Xahar", as transcripted, means "sister" in Farsi Tongue)

Maurice Druon, La Volupté d’être

Just finished: Ludwik Stomma, Krolów Francji wzloty i upadki (AFAIK never translated to English, so the title would be something like "French Kings' Ups and Downs")

George S. Patton, War as I Knew It


I'm usually rather sceptical when it comes to memories of military commanders, but Patton's diary is a damn good read

Have you read Trotsky's memories? I've recently finished it. Trosky was quite good with a pen.

Władysław Szpilman, "The Pianist"

It became a basis for Polański's movie, as you probably might have guessed.

Richard Nixon's Memoires.
Are you related to Xahar?

No, who ever that is.

It's a nom de guerre of a notorious Bangladeshi insurgent, aiming at violently overthrowing Sheikh Hasina's government.
