Best of this week on Tolstoy Therapy

Aung San Suu Kyi and the books that kept her strong, including John le Carré, Austen & WWI poetry

Aung San Suu Kyi is an incredible figure of courage and an endless campaigner for democracy, and I've been previously inspired by her collective writings, Freedom From Fear. However, even the strongest of wills would by tested by facing almost 15 years of house arrest. To hear about the music and books that helped Aung San Suu Kyi to retain a degree of strength during this time is a great gift to us.
