Savvy Verse and Wit Reviews Masha Hamilton’s Latest
Savvy Verse and Wit, a blog dedicated to all literary and poetic works, has reviewed Masha Hamilton’s recently released fifth novel, What Changes Everything. Serena, the article’s author, found the book to be “...engaging” and states “There is great compassion and hidden understanding in these fictional lives…”.
Below is an excerpt from the blog…
Danger is around every corner, or that’s how it should be perceived in this novel, and when it isn’t unfortunate things happen but at other times unexpectedly good things happen as well. Hamilton’s prose is easy to read and is packed with emotion and perspectives that are rarely examined in war-based fiction. The novel seeks to be well-rounded in perspective, which is tough given the complexities of the factions in Afghanistan. What Changes Everything by Masha Hamilton is engaging and hammers home the impact of war not just on the immediate participants and their families, but also those on the periphery and who are actively compassionate in their work and have a need to assist in any way they can.
What Changes Everything was released by Unbridled Books in May 2013. Hamilton is the author of two other books published by Unbridled, The Distance Between Us and 31 Hours which the Washington Post called one of the best novels of 2009 and independent bookstores named an Indie choice. She is currently working in Afghanistan as Director of Communications and Public Diplomacy at the US Embassy. Hamilton also founded two world literacy projects, the Camel Book Drive and the Afghan Women’s Writing Project. She is the winner of the 2010 Women’s National Book Association award. Check out the inspiration behind the book, What Changes Everything. She is also behind the Afghan Women’s Writing Project.
