Two Roads Home and Homes on the 49th Shelf‘s Books of the Year Lists

Two Roads Home by Daniel Griffin was on the Fiction List: “It interested me to consider how people can go from peaceful protest to violent acts, so for sure that moral grey zone was important. But for me the answer to why and how a group of smart, educated young people turn to violence took more imagination and soul searching than it did research.” Read Griffin’s conversation with Trevor Corkum here.

Homes: A Refugee Story by Abu Bakr Al Rabeeah and Winnie Yeung was on the Non-Fiction List: “It interested me to consider how people can go from peaceful protest to violent acts, so for sure that moral grey zone was important. But for me the answer to why and how a group of smart, educated young people turn to violence took more imagination and soul searching than it did research.” Read Kerry Clare’s recommendation here.
