How I Became a Tree by Sumana Roy

Everything is interesting and charming about this book, but the first lines really got me: “At first it was the underwear. I wanted to become a tree because trees did not wear bras.” Yes. Indian writer Sumana Roy says that she wrote on tree time, without structure or expectation, and I find that to be the best way to read it as well. A compelling and far-ranging meditation on trees, those who love them, and our relationship with all—this book is the most delightful, informative gem I’ve read in a while.—Melinda
