A book club choice, that I had to finish by January, I finished reading The Man in the White Sharkskin Suit yesterday. Not a biography that I would have chosen, it speaks of a Jewish family from Cairo, driven out of Egypt after the Six Day War. Uncomfortable in places...too many places.

If you don't mind me asking: was the discomfort because the material was touching on personal experience, because the material was very vividly portrayed...?

Aspects of the situations described touched too close to home respecting my work and certain things about my own homelife.

My apologies for resurrecting the matter.

No worries. It's not a problem.
