Synopsis: Activists, rock stars, and Hollywood celebrities have raised awareness of the plight of Tibet. In Conjuring Tibet, Charlotte Painter creates a compelling frame for the issues - China's desecration of Tibet's religion and culture, its wasting of Tibet's natural resources for industry and nuclear stockpiling. In this novel, an American woman travels with a young Tibetan lama to forbidden terrain, a remote monastery. Her notebook records stories of Tibetan persecutions, the agony and humor of her journey, as well as a parallel tale of magical lovers and friends who undertake the liberation of Tibet. Pulsing through this exotic journey is a celebration of the imagination to overcome human limitations and transcend boundaries, even geographic ones.
From the Back Cover: Diane Johnson: "Charlotte Painter is that "perfect traveler..." Her Tibet is varied, funny and gripping... her grace and learning make this a wonderfully true book." Jeff Greenwald: "deeply personal yet politically astute...a compelling accountby a witness of great integrity."
Maxine Hong Kingston: "a wonderful book that tells mythically and realistically a story about Tibet in the nuclear age. Charlotte Painter evokes the old gods that they might free us from the inhuman world we have made."
"CONJURING TIBET is an affecting documentary novel about present-day Tibet under Chinese rule. It is a remarkable literary achievement that weaves together fact and fiction to depict a land held in bondage... Reading CONJURING TIBET produces the same chilling reaction as does BRAVE NEW WORLD, THE HANDMAID'S TALE, A CLOCKWORK ORANGE or 1984. Raymond Lifchez in Inquiring Mind.
