Always a reader. Writing to remember and to share my thoughts on the books I read.
In The Rise & Fall of Great Powers by Tom Rachman, we meet Tooly Zylberberg at three points in her life. In 2011, Tooly is a thirty-something bookseller. In 1999, Tooly is a young-adult in New York City. In 1988, Tooly is a young girl moving from place to place. The book is a bit like putting together a jigsaw puzzle. As you fit more and more pieces in, a picture of Tooly's life emerges.
