  1. Many thanks for your valuable insights into fiction and development. Generally, fiction reading helps us to become more empathetic – a key to successful development practice.
    My wife and I were Peace Corps Volunteers in Brazil, later served seven years as community organizers for the Catholic Church land commission in the Amazon; I subsequently directed Catholic Relief Services in Brazil and a USAID program. I am also a literary writer, and some of our experiences are captured in short story collection, A Hero for the People, published by Press 53 (a highly respected literary press in North Carolina) – the book won the 2014 Catholic Arts & Letters Award. http://www.press53.com/BioArthurPowers.html – also available for 99 cents on Amazon Kindle – https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Dstripbooks&field-keywords=a+hero+for+the+people+arthur+powers
    Thanks again!
