The Lizard Cage by Karen Connelly...
 
@ Canterbury Tales Bookshop / Book exchange....
 
Beautifully written and taking us into an exotic land, Karen Connelly’s debut novel The Lizard Cage is a celebration of the resilience of the human spirit.
 
Teza once electrified the people of Burma with his protest songs against the dictatorship.
Arrested by the Burmese secret police in the days of mass protest, he is seven years into a twenty-year sentence in solitary confinement.
Cut off from his family and contact with other prisoners, he applies his acute intelligence, Buddhist patience, and humor to find meaning in the interminable days, and searches for news in every being and object that is grudgingly allowed into his cell.
 
Despite his isolation, Teza has a profound influence on the people around him.
His very existence challenges the brutal authority of the jailers, and his steadfast spirit inspires radical change.
Even when Teza’s criminal server tries to compromise the singer for his own gain, Teza befriends him and risks falling into the trap of forbidden conversation, food, and the most dangerous contraband of all: paper and pen.
 
Yet, it is through Teza’s relationship with Little Brother, a twelve-year-old orphan who’s grown up inside the walls, that we ultimately come to understand the importance of hope and human connection in the midst of injustice and violence.
Teza and the boy are prisoners of different orders: only one of them dreams of escape and only one of them will achieve it their extraordinary friendship frees both of them in utterly surprising ways.

The Death of Common Sense: How Law Is Suffocating America - by Philip K. Howard,
 
@ Canterbury Tales Bookshop / Book exchange...
 
This concise and eloquent manifesto shows how the excess of government regulations does not protect Americans but instead acts as legal quicksand, stifling growth and creating paralyzing over bureaucratization.
Using blood-boiling examples of government regulations run amok, Howard reveals a society in which rules have replaced thinking, allowing law to infiltrate the nooks and crannies of everyday life.
