    This is a novel of Tibet, but not the idealized Western version There are no mandalas, and what lamas appear are barely disguised shamans The petty despots who run this land, still feudal in the twentieth century, own slaves and give them away, employ executioners and have maids whose bodies are theirs for the asking At least until China intervenes, fir

    Despite my memories of traveling through Tibet and my affinity for the Tibetan people , I could not finish this book about a feudal warlord prince growing up in 1930s Tibet My first clue should have been that it was published by the Chinese People s Literature Publishing House which struck me as disconcerting since thisthan likely means that it s been sanc

    This is a wonderfully written book It is bold, extravagant and shocking in parts It has the feel of authenticity although who knows what the world of chieftains in pre revolutionary Tibet was really like The author speaks frankly about slaves and the freedoms a chief exercises over the bodies of his women.It is weak on plot, following instead a timeline with developments as
