Discussions for The Dirty Life (Question #1 and 2)
I noticed that there are some discussion questions at the end of the book. I'm going to post one of them here.
I will post 2 questions every week (starting on Sunday) through the end of the month.
Kristin was a freelance writer in New York City, which gave her the opportunity to travel around the world. When she first met Mark on his farm, she felt like a foreigner.
In what ways do you think this feeling comforted her?
Were you surprised when the situation flipped and Kristin felt foreign to the life she used to lead in the city?
In what ways did Kimball's yearning for a home sway her decision to leave the city and start a new life with Mark?
If you were put in a similar situation, do you think you would have made the same decision?
Why or why not?
What is your own personal definition of "home"?
