Phenomenal storytelling of a paradigm-shifting event
on May 4, 2011
I bought this piece expecting I would read it later--maybe tonight, maybe over a couple of evenings before bed--yet an hour has gone by and not only have I already plowed through it, I've also found myself rereading entire sections.
Wolman gives us a backstage tour of a revolution years in the making. The details are so specific, so well-researched, so vibrant, that I occasionally forgot that I was reading nonfiction. If you followed the events in Egypt as they unfolded, and even (especially?) if you didn't, I highly recommend this fascinating piece.
