Can't she be a bit nicer?

On Sunday (12/13/09), the New York Times Book Review offered a brief take on Malalai Joya’s A Woman Among Warlords:  The Extraordinary Story of an Afghan Who Dared to Raise Her VoiceTimes reviewer Marc Tracy seemed to like the book OK, with a few notable caveats.

Tracy feels that Joia’s  “tendency to choose rageful denunciation over calm observation is immensely frustrating.”

This is a young brave woman who has faced off against the Taliban and various warlords in her home country. She had to check her wedding flowers for bombs, and cannot sleep in the same house two nights in a row.

I feel some healthy feminine rage is in its place here. You go sister!
