Lose Yourself?

I keep falling behind posting about books, so I’m going to do two at once from now on. The last two books I read, The One-Straw Revolution and The Mysterious Flame of Queen Loana happen to be a good fit for each other so it seems like this should work. We’ll see how other books go.

Although one is a non-fiction book about natural farming practices in Japan and the other is fiction about a man in Italy with amnesia, they both cover similar ground.

The first tells you to see the world how it really is by losing yourself by growing your own food, but then the second tells how someone who has lost his memory is unable to see the world without knowing who he is.

I have no idea who is right here, but at least I learned some tricks about how to grow more vegetables in my yard and also some interesting stuff about Italy in World War II.

Up next, Although of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself: A Road Trip with David Foster Wallace and something else to be figured out later.
