Book recommendations for a retired anthropologist?
posted by TheGoodBlood to media & arts (8 answers total)
I'll be visiting my father-in-law in Asia soon and I'd like to give him a book, since he's an avid reader. Thing is, I (and my SO) know nothing about his taste in books! Here are some indications that might help:
-He's a retired anthropologist who researched kinship in China and Japan.
-He loved José Saramago's Blindness.
-He's politically active and progressive.
