Drink the Sky – Lake Sagaris March 25, 2013
Like the dark side of the moon, Latin America lies tucked away in the southern hemisphere, the forgotten half of this old new world that we North Americans think we’ve mapped but still fail to understand. In Drink the Sky, Lesley Krueger holds up North Americans’ puritanism and best intentions under the intense light of Rio de Janeiro and the savage brilliance of the Amazon. What she reveals is that we are never completely who we think we are. Rich in sensual and intellectual surprises, her book is a fine, rewarding read.
