Letters from Burma is a wonderful collection of letters written by Aung San Suu Kyi about her experiences in Burma. Instead of solely focussing on the politics surrounding Burma and her house arrest, she writes about Burmese people, their culture, and their experiences in this tumultuous time. Her writing style evokes rich pictures of the Burmese country-side while still keeping its humble tone.
