I enjoyed this book of short stories set in Nepal. The stories provided nice little glimpses into daily Nepali life and culture. I felt like I learned a lot about changing times, relationships, and gender roles in Nepal. I especially enjoyed it since I am working with so many refugees who are ethnically Nepali and have been living in Nepal for many years. I felt like these stories helped me to better understand their culture. The stories were all beautifully written and captivating. The combination of these stories and the stories the wonderful people I work with tell me really make me want to go to Nepal....or maybe it's really that I want to be Nepalese...one of the two.
