I felt like I was in a kinetic poem the entire time I was reading, anapests and dactyls, joined in alliteration and gorgeous language. Seeing instead of looking.
If there’s a ghost from yesteryear in it, is it a historical? – Shallowreader
He drove home by heart. Each chapter stands on its own, but they come together to tell a story of three generations, reaching from old Calcutta to chilly Carbondale to sunny California.
Every character is nuanced and real, leaping off the page without sensationalism or gimmick, and their stories, secret or spoken, are told with a light and poignant touch. The universal themes of money and marriage, love and longing, ambition and fate are seen through the lens of often thwarted lives. A Hmong refugee family with a severely epileptic child, Lia Lee, lands up in California, and so begins the struggle between her well-meaning American doctors at a local hospital and her loving family and wider Hmong spiritual community about how best to take care of her.
Fadiman is an accomplished and compassionate writer, journalist, and anthropologist, and her book should be required reading.

Not with that assured plot, the omniscient and precise characterization, the beautiful language, and the telling of tragic war torn history through the eyes of children and ordinary people. The story follows three children growing up in Colombo through civil war, the Tamil resistance movement, and a new life in America. This book is a fast ferocious education in Sri Lankan history, a wrenching treatise on the horrors of war, and a deeply moving story of families, childhood friendships, and adult relationships. It means to be broken. It means forever. Not just immigrant daughters, but all daughters.

In addition to filling in many gaps in my knowledge about the Lost Boys of Sudan and how this one made it, painfully alone, to America, the book is in turn beautiful, heartbreaking, taut, and clear eyed. Deng is supremely self aware and completely un-self-pitying, despite a life's worth of sorrow and hope. I was born, I believe, to do more. The myriad cast is ribald and rousing — friends, shopkeepers, bullies, mothers, dealers, and more — and the vibrant borough of the Bronx becomes a character in itself.

What is the What by Dave Eggers. But analysts worry that it is facing deeper challenges. Consumers are yearning for healthier, less processed food. Supermarkets are giving fresh produce more space, at the expense of tinned products.
And the rise of online grocers like Amazon is further disrupting distribution channels. Having made their fortune by founding an investment bank—later sold to Credit Suisse—they bought Brahma, a domestic beer business. Yet beer, it turned out in the s, was just the aperitif, and 3G moved on to other targets.
Bold acquisitions, financed with dollops of debt, are only one facet of the 3G method. Critics resent the human cost—Kraft and Heinz have some 10, fewer staff than they did in Warren Buffett, a vastly successful investor, co-invested with them to purchase Heinz, and followed on with Kraft. The success of 3G relied on a double-whopper of financial insights. By financing the acquisition of the latter with much of the former, 3G and its partners could pocket a tasty spread. Second, investors have tended to undervalue the endurance of consumer brands like Kraft, so costs could be slashed without seeing sales decrease by much.
That recipe allowed Kraft and other platforms to post margins above the industry average, pleasing investors. But the model seems to be running out of steam. Shares in the maker of Budweiser have fallen by over a fifth in the past 12 months.

Gross operating profits are stagnant at Restaurant Brands International, the parent company of Burger King. It named a new chief executive in January. The group can point to new product launches and daring marketing plans. Possibly 3G might be tempted to try another mega-deal to tackle these problems, hoping that another acquisition will generate the synergies needed to give profits a boost.
But that is becoming trickier.

AB InBev will find it hard to buy a large rival without facing antitrust problems. Higher interest rates and dearer equity valuations will also compress the spread that 3G makes between its cost of funding and the cash flow that its acquisition targets throw off. An old trick, maybe. But then again, cutting costs to boost returns was hardly inventing the wheel. Join them.
