This book brings together a unique and wide-ranging set of writings about Nepal. Through a diverse set of perspectives and evocative narratives, it dislodges monolithic views on identity and the modern Nepali experience. Anyone interested in deepening their understanding of Nepal should read it.
PARAG PATHAK, Ph.D., Class of 1922 Professor of Economics Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)
This is a fascinating collection of reminiscences of Nepal by fifty individuals, most of whom are partial outsiders -Nepalis who have lived much of their lives abroad or foreigners who have spent significant periods in the country. The editors and some of the contributors discuss the significance of memory and nostalgia and the deceptiveness of the Shangri-la concept, but the book’s main value lies in the vignettes of many aspects of Nepali life, including art, music, politics, the status of women in society and the changing physical and social environment from the 1950s to the present day.
