I greatly enjoyed reading Bina Shah's new book, Blessings, a collection of sobering, thoughtful stories set in Pakistan. She has a graceful way with words, and a compassion that allows her to really get inside her characters' heads.
Cool word find: "ambit" meaning "scope" or "span." I've never stopped to consider the root of the word "ambitious."
I wonder what other obscure nouns are hiding behind their more popular adjective forms, as we sit here unawares...
