Nick’s Summer Reading List

July 21, 2008

As Caroline has already written, Friday was Nick’s last day in the office. Nick and I use to sit in the same office pod, and he’d be proud to know that everyone’s already commenting on how “quiet,” “boring,” and “normal” the Field Pod is without his mischief. So, in honor of my dearly departed (to Alaska!) former officemate, here is his summer reading list:

Summer Reading List 3:
Nick Bauer, Campaigns Program Assistant

The Little Prince, by Antoine De Saint Exupery
The story of a downed fighter pilot who meets a little “alien” boy, this book is a beautiful and simple reminder of life’s little truths that we tend to forget.

The Far Pavilions, by M.M. Kaye
Written in 1978, this book is an epic novel detailing the youth and coming of age of a British-Indian boy in colonized India. The protagonist’s fascinating struggle to reconcile two vastly different cultures with his personal convictions underscores a unique examination of colonialism and its consequences.

Bon voyage, Nick! Have fun campaigning in sub-zero temperatures!
