Omg, you must marry me immediately! Or if you're a woman be my super close friend! Just came across this: so cool, so thoughtful, thank you so much. I am going to order the CD and I'm sure listen to Paul Robeson's Balm in Gilead at LEAST 500 times in a row...just beautiful. Btw, do you know the Soul Stirrers?: '50's a capella gospel, Sam Cooke sang with them, at least for a time...they do a killer version of "His Eye is on the Sparrow"...also here is a great book: Pilgrim on the Great Bird Continent, by Lyanda Lynn Haupt. It's about Darwin's voyage on The Beagle, as (beautifully) interpreted through his journals...
really glad you liked Parched--which will be re-launched in trade paperback by New American Library September 5th, and I hope finds its way to more generous readers like you.
Many thanks, Heather King
