Walls Excerpt in Reader’s Digest

If you open the current Reader’s Digest Canada – alongside “the most optimistic, tear-jerking, inspiring, unexpected, hilarious, brilliant and disarming moments of the year” – you’ll find a long excerpt from Walls: Travels Along the Barricades. The good people at RD did an excellent job piecing together different sections of Walls into a concise narrative that stands as a sort of miniaturized version of the book.

Walls is not particularly hilarious or disarming – and I wouldn’t dare say it is brilliant – but the book is occasionally unexpected, possibly inspiring, potentially tear-jerking and, at its heart, cautiously optimistic.

The Reader’s Digest excerpt is called “Crossing the Line.” Check it out the next time you are sitting in your dentist’s waiting room, or some such place.
