A Nepali’s American Odyssey – Ramesh Shrestha


Availability: 5 in stock

SKU: A Nepali's American Odyssey Categories: , Tags: ,

“This evocative memoir takes you on time travel as a young Fulbright scholar explores the wide expanse of the U.S. in the mid-70s. Ramesh Shrestha’s clear-eyed account of the journey is filled with poetic touches as he recalls his culture shock but also deep interest in traversing the country and absorbing experience wherever it presents itself. While Nepal has provided the stage for plenty of foreigners to document their adventures, there’s very little in the way of literature about the reverse perspective – a Nepali chronicling life on the other side of the globe. This unique, sometimes subtle, voice glides across the scene while providing small sensory details that illuminate his cultural expedition in America. An academic assignment took him far from home but this book is anything but an academic read.”
– Brent Wiley
“Ramesh’s tale of his two years as a Fulbright student scholar at Michigan State University is a mirror image of my own experiences as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Nepal from 1967 to 1970. ”
– Mike Gill
“Fun, honest, and thoughtful, Ramesh Shrestha’s Odyssey gives us a special view into the adventure and heartache of a Nepali free spirit’s travels to distant shores fifty years ago. A great way to see Nepal and the USA through a new set of eyes.”
