CONTEMPORARY TIBETAN SHORT STORIES By AHP 53
Hardcover: $17.65
Prints in 3-5 business days
Storytelling is at the heart of this collection, meriting our appreciation and enjoyment of the literary fruit of what Lama Jabb has coined the "oral continuities in Tibetan literature."... More > More than two dozen young writers from the Tibetan Plateau have probed their most tender memories and curious encounters to pen tales with characters and circumstances that fascinate, puzzle, disappoint, or leave us pained. Each story is prefaced by introductory remarks on the author's inspiration. Many draw on actual occurrences, however surreal. This framing lends an "embedded" effect to several of the works: stories are nested inside stories, sometimes within a yet wider narrative reminiscent of the vetāla cycle by which the carrier of the narrative (and of a story-telling corpse) is drawn to pose another question unwinding a garland of tales. This collection provide a portal for readers unfamiliar with Tibetan lives, whether in adobe-style homes on arid hillsides or in yak-hair tents dotting the grasslands.< Less
