      (Reprinted from the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography [cclapcenter]. I am the original author of this essay, as well as the owner of CCLaP; it is not being reprinted illegally.)To his credit, Charles Thompson obviously came from a place of sincerity when sitting down to write the Peace Corps novel Aralen Dreams, the storyline of which I suspect is at least partly autobiographical; and that's what makes it hard to even admit what the main problem is of this earnest yet misguided book, [...]

It feels like the author tries too hard to connect the experience to Peace Corps when the story could be told in a more generic and accessible setting.However, I think that with a strong editor, the writing would better reflect t [...]
