Someday could be soon

Burma in the news. Do you want some context? Read Karen Connelly's The Lizard Cage, which took the Orange Broadband Prize for New Writers earlier this year. I read it last winter and found the book so enomously powerful. "Someday the government of Burma will change...," Connelly writes in her acknowledgements with such faith, and dare we hope that someday could be soon?

Update: read The last public voice of democracy in Myanmar.
