Weekend read: Thanksgiving in Mongolia

Ariel Levy’s remarkable and deeply moving article in the New Yorker about travelling in Mongolia while pregnant received such (deserved) widespread acclaim when it was first published that featuring it as a Weekend Read seemed a little pointless. But reading it again today, it retains every bit of the emotional power it had the first time I read it. It’s highly recommended, but have tissues at hand.
