An evocation of contemporary Burma from the author of STALIN'S NOSE and THE OATMEAL ARK. Through his intense studies of the lives of the individual Burmese he encounters, MacLean reveals their patient endurance, fragility and charm, and makes us feel the weight of the oppressive military regime under which they labour.
