Review by Patricia Holland
I’m reading Jessie Greenhouse’s recently published novel, The High House, and drawing breath every so often to also indulge in a spot of TV. I chose, ABC’s (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) iview, and Greta Thunberg: A Year to Change the World.
Everyone, do this now.
Read, hear, view the gifts Jessie and Greta are offering to our World.
If you don’t already, you will learn how soon you will grieve the days when you felt free to close your eyes to climate change (close to Jessie’s brilliant words).
Brilliant novel. Brilliant documentary series.
We owe it to every creature (that includes your kids too), every plant, every breath of air, every droplet of clean water to read, listen and watch the brilliance of these two women’s hard work; the hard work of Jessie’s characters to reflect reality; and the hard work of everyone to whom Greta speaks, to reflect our reality.
Pass on their brilliance.
Act on their brilliance.
[Please don’t let my post put you off. Both are compelling reading and viewing.]
