Paul's Book Club: Into the Heart of Borneo by Redmond O'Hanlon -- April 19th at 7 pm
To undertake a four-month journey into the bug-ridden rain forest between the Orinocco and the Amazon requires courage and a certain amount of madness. To write about it as Redmond O'Hanlon does requires a scientist's precision, a streak of poetry, and a robust sense of the absurd, which is exactly what O'Hanlon, the author of Into the Heart of Borneo, brings to his latest book. At once funny and genuinely terrifying, In Trouble Again takes us into the heart of darkness infested jaguars, assassin bugs, and piranha, a place where men are driven to murder over a bottle of ketchup, and where the locals--the elusive Yanomami Indians--may be the most violent people on earth.
