30 Day Book Challenge – day 8: An unpopular book I think should be a bestseller

I am a Chechen cover artI’m going to have to more or less pass on this one. Firstly, I don’t usually know whether a book is unpopular; secondly, I can’t think of any book I’ve read that fits this criterion.

However, I Am a Chechen! by German Sadulaev is probably not a bestseller, but I found it a powerful memoir with a lot of serious things to say about identity, loss and the casualties of history.

I’ve already written about this book, so won’t repeat myself.
