We are counting down to May
The book will be released in May, and you are all invited to the launch party in Charlottesville Virginia on May 10th. Q. Why Charlottesville? A. Why not!
what is it about?
ummm, lots of interlocking themes. the experience of working in health care in Nepal can not be boiled down to just one small thing. It’s about hospitals; the civil war; the culture of Nepal; love and belonging; collectivist culture vs individualist culture; the legacy of colonialism; death and eternity.
An early reviewer noted that it fits about ten genres. It’s a thriller but it’s also a love story but it’s also a historical novel of the Nepal Civil War and it’s got a lot of ethnography in there.
The book is to be found on the web…
