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.

A Statue was ordered on Dec 22nd and Paid 194.25 including FREE DELIVERY for me as a GIFT for Christmas and they Confirmed that it will be there in 4-5 days but it NEVER arrived till 30th of December and inspite of my various emails they only replied that it is being finished and will be shipped in 24hrs but that was a LIE and no further delivery information was every sent to me. I called and left a message on the phone number listed on their website which is a NY number but no one answered that phone and I left messages but no reply or update on my Statue was sent to me inspite of my daily emails to know the status. I still await this Statue but NO RESPONSIBLE REPLY.
