Her book is short and is a compilation of her grandmother - Lilah Wingfield's - diary of her journey and the photographs she took along the way. "A Glimpse of Empire" is a glimpse, a small peek, at the British Raj and a candid look at some of the players - both native and British - who were important at the time/5.   Glimpse is the third Carol Lynch Williams book Ive read, and my first experience with her verse. I had suspected from the eloquently spare style of The Chosen One and Miles From Ordinary that the author would handle verse effectively, and that theory was borne out by the pared back, sharp poetry used to tell the story in Glimpse/5.

In general, Hardt and Negri theorize an ongoing transition from a "modern" phenomenon of imperialism, centered on individual nation-states, to an emergent Publisher: Harvard University Press.   The Glimpse is a very different take on dystopian genre. Sanity has never been deeply questioned, and people in dystopian worlds usually struggle with physical enemy like war, famine, or lack of natural resources. The Glimpse shows a frightening possibility of economic collapse and how government discriminates people by their DNA tests/5. —Hari Kunzru, The New York Times Book Review “From the Ruins of Empire retains the power to instruct and even to shock.
