Rascal Rain: a Year in Papua New Guinea
Baranay sees with a novelist’s perceptions. Her strengths are descriptions of people, places and events; her eye and her nose for the beautiful and disgusting, her ear for speech and her ability to set scenes, draw characters and have them come powerfully and unforgettably to life. … A worrying and thralling book.
