The Royal Ghosts: Stories of Contemporary Nepal
The Royal Ghosts: Stories of Contemporary Nepal
Description
About the Book:

The Royal Ghosts features character trying to reconcile their true desires with the forces at work in Nepali society. Against the backdrop of the violent Maoist insurgencies that have claimed thousands of lives, these characters struggle with their duties to their aging parents and oppressive caste system and the complexities of arranged marriage. In the end they manage to find peace and connection often where they least expect it with the people directly in front of them. These stories brilliantly examine not only Kathmandu during a time of political crisis and cultural transformation but also the effects of that city on the individual consciousness.

About the Author:

He is the author of Arresting God in Kathmandu which earned him a Whiting Award, and the Guru of Love which was a New York Times Notable Book, a San Francisco Chronicle Best Book of the Year and a finalist for the Kiriyama Prize. He Lives in Bloomington Indiana.

Thank you very much! My grandpa received the book today and the smile you put on his face was priceless. He has been trying to order this book from other companies for months now. He only recently asked me for help and you have made this transaction so easy. My grandpa is so happy he wants to order two more copies. I am currently in the process of ordering 2 more.
