Product Code: P ISBN: A bright, unusual boy who is disillusioned at a young age, Pip believes that he sees guilt shining in the faces of men wherever he goes. On his picaresque journey, he sweeps through society, revealing the highest and lowest in human nature and only slowly coming to self-understanding.
He searches the points of the compass for what will help, groping for a place where he can feel content, certain that he has no place where he belongs and that he rides the rails through a great darkness.

How totally fascinating! What could be more pure and blameless, or better propaganda for racial purity and white supremacy, than a white camellia, after all? Great question, too, Marja-Leena!
http://edutoursport.com/libraries/2020-02-26/3915.php Thank you, Marja-Leena! I constantly give winks of new English books to our library.
I have to write that one down. The author referred by Knights obviously on Birth of the Nation. KKK thought itself to be somehow aristocratic in nature in the beginning, before real awful atrocities, Strange Fruit. It does indeed sound like a fascinating story.
Marly, taxes and kids do keep one busy! Beth, yes, I too find the camellia and K connection very strange and disturbing.
The historical setting is quite fascinating. The film you mention sounds quite interesting, I should look into it. So your library has many English language books. I can think of one especially that would be appeal to Finns… Back later… I checked out the film — is it the silent film, about three hours long?
It was very controversial for portraying blacks very badly and inaccurately and for favouring the Klan. I always wanted to write a book set in trees!
Thanks again, Marja-Leena, and also to your lovely! I like the idea of layers, too: grit that is layered to become a pearl. Finnish book news! Marly, that is interesting. Good to see Finnish books getting translated into English, by Finns yet.
He does book reviews and some translations of Finnish books and more…. Fascinating stuff here…i never would have guessed the kkk connection. Thank you so much for asking that question and sharing it here for us to read. Marly, hope you enjoy it. I so enjoyed your interview with Marly as well.
