    Review: Anthony Doerr dreams big with 'Cloud Cuckoo Land'

    If you’re novelist Anthony Doerr (“All the Light We Cannot See”) you write a story that consists of five separate stories, spans millennia, and all ties together with a fictional manuscript attributed to the ancient Greek novelist Antonius Diogenes called “Cloud Cuckoo Land.” It helps that the characters in the sub-stories are so likable, even when, like a teenager named Seymour in modern-day Idaho, they’re under the thrall of an eco-terrorist group. The “Cloud Cuckoo Land” manuscript is discovered in a tomb inside a wooden chest with the inscription: “Stranger, whoever you are, open this to learn what will amaze you.”

    UK's Labour pledges to hike green investment to win power

    Britain's main opposition Labour Party would invest 28 billion pounds ($38 billion) every year until 2030 to tackle climate change and grow new green jobs and industries if it wins the next election, its finance policy chief Rachel Reeves said on Monday. With no national poll due until 2024, Labour wants to carve out an alternative agenda to the governing Conservative Party, which has adopted many of the opposition's policies, to win back its traditional supporters in northern and central England. But Labour has often struggled to make its voice heard with the party's leftist and more centrist wings still waging war against each other, and leader Keir Starmer hopes the party's conference will take a step forward in forging more unity.
