I have just finished a fantastic book, The Glass Palace.
For anyone with an interest in the history of Asia, particularly Burma and India this book is a must. Nothing I have read for ages paints as good a picture as what life is really like, wan’t to jump straight on a plane!
I read it at the same time as Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman by Haruki Marakami. Reading Japanese surreal short stories at the same time as 5 generations of Burmese history is a good brain twist!
