Hello. While reading a book in English - the writer is Canadian - I came across this sentence:

My mother talked to me about Canadian mines in Honduras, the travesty of it all, her rage against the world having found this particular nook to make itself at home in tonight.

I would be very grateful if you could help me with the underlined part, as I'm struggling to understand it. Thank you so much!

anonymousI would be very grateful if you could help me with the underlined part, as I'm struggling to understand it.

I had to read it twice. It's a real grammar riddle, and it doesn't make much sense.

The writer's mother harbors rage against the world. The writer personifies this rage, saying that it settled down comfortably (made itself at home) in the matter of Honduran mines (this particular nook) that evening (tonight).

My mother talked to me about Canadian mines in Honduras.
She talked to me about the travesty of it all.
All this was because on this night
her rage against the world
had found this place to lodge in.

Her rage was lodging (taking up residence) in the part of her mind related to the topic of Canadian mines in Honduras.
