A new book, about a place which is simultaneously very dear to many many Australian's, whilst also being a source of regret and guilt, The Devil's Tears was really intriguing when it first arrived. And it's one of those books that is keeping me awake nights. For two reasons - the subject matter built around the struggle in East Timor is extremely confrontational and Horne doesn't pull many punches. The second reason is that the book is really really hard to put down.
