Bookshop Buy: "Brothers of the Gun"
A young journalist comes of age during the start of the Syrian Civil War. As his country fragments and ISIS devours his hometown of Raqqa, Marwan Hisham courageously preservers. An original and creative contribution to the complex Middle East conflict and the war memoir genre.
All books mentioned in the Bookshop Buy segment are worth adding to your stamp card at the Elliot Bay Book Shop, or elsewhere, such as the One-Click Wonder.
The rule of 3's is real. It cannot be explained, like using odd numbers in jokes instead of even numbers. So here's two more hardcover titles worth a buy:
War On Peace by Ronan Farrow
The Everything Store by Brad Stone
