Sky Burial: An Epic Love Story Of Tibet
About This Book
It was 1994 when Xinran, a journalist and the internationally acclaimed author of The Good Women of China, received a telephone call asking her to travel four hours to meet a woman who had just crossed the border from Tibet into China.
Xinran made the trip and met the woman, called Shu Wen, who recounted the story of her thirty-year odyssey in the vast landscape of Tibet. In Sky Burial, Xinran has recreated Shu Wen's journey, painting an extraordinary portrait of a woman, and a land, each at the mercy of fate and politics.
