In Search of the Elusive Peace Corps Moment: Destination: Estonia
As one of the first Peace Corps members to be stationed in post-Iron Curtain Estonia, Wells finds himself confronted with a friendly but (to him) frustrating culture that won’t allow him to do the good deeds he’s come to do. (Note: This is one of the first books I edited.)
The Man Who Spoke Snakish
In the author’s native country, the “exploration of alternative history by a well-loved contemporary author” is so popular that it’s spawned multiple pop-culture offshoots, even board games. In medieval Estonia, Leemet is the last speaker of the ancient tongue of Snakish, a language that allows its speakers to command all animals. (Recommended by H.E. Eerik Marmei, Estonian ambassador to the U.S., in CN Traveler.)
