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.

About the Author:

Rory MacLean's books, including best-sellers Stalin's Nose and Under the Dragon, have challenged and invigorated travel writing, and -- according to the late John Fowles -- are among works that 'marvellously explain why literature still lives'. He has won the Yorkshire Post Best First Work prize and an Arts Council Writers' Award, was twice shortlisted for the Thomas Cook/Daily Telegraph Travel Book Prize and was nominated for the International IMPAC Dublin Literary award. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature and a regular contributor to BBC Radio 3 and 4. Born and educated in Canada, he lives with his family in Dorset.

William Dalrymple, FRSL, FRGS, FRAS, prominent historian, travel writer and broadcaster. His books have won numerous awards and prizes, including the Duff Cooper Memorial Prize, the Thomas Cook Travel Book Award, the Sunday Times Young British Writer of the Year Award, the Hemingway, the Kapuściński and the Wolfson Prizes. He has been four times longlisted and once shortlisted for the Samuel Johnson Prize for non-fiction. In 2015 he was appointed the OP Jindal Distinguished Lecturer at Brown University.

Review:

Praise for Stalin's Nose: 'Crazy, charming, a delight' - John Le Carre 'A minor masterpiece of comic surrealism' - The Times Praise for The Oatmeal Ark: 'So polished, so clever, so artful, so innovative; a remarkable, beguiling journey' - Michael Thompson-Noel, Financial Times 'Such a book as this rather marvellously explains why literature still lives' - John Fowles, Spectator
