Join alumni in the Portland area to discuss Fieldwork by Mischa Berlinski. This event is being hosted by Lesly Sanocki '90. If you plan to attend, please contact Lesly via email to RSVP and for directions.
In Fieldwork, the main character, Mischa Berlinski, moves to northern Thailand with his girlfriend after she takes a job there as a school teacher. While working for an English-language newspaper, Berlinski receives a tip about an American anthropologist who was found dead, an apparent suicide, in the Thai prison where she was serving a fifty-year sentence for murder. The investigation into her supposed crime becomes a personal obsession for Berlinski and readers are lead through a tale of anthropologists, missionaries, demon possession, sexual taboos, murder, and more. Fieldwork website, from the publisher Farrar, Straus and Giroux
Possible books to be read for future discussions include: The Help by Kathryn Stockett and Day After Night by Anita Diamant.
