Sticky culture; Section 61 and Superstorm Sandy


It’s been a busy and fascinating time again at Book Talk, the column I curate for National Geographic. Elizabeth Pisani took us deep inside the mysterious, fascinating, infuriating place that is Indonesia; Kathryn Miles took us inside the swirling maelstrom that was Β Superstorm Sandy, ten years on; and my old editor at NatGeo, Bob Poole, gave a moving account of Arlington Cemetry’s Section 60,where the victims of America’s most recent wars are buried. What kind of books would YOU like to see featured?
