Pema and the Yak

I wrote this book about Tibetans living in exile in India, over about nine years, wandering into every nook and cranny in the Himalayas, along the Indo-Tibetan border, gathering stories from DJs, ex-guerrilla fighters, soldiers, doctors, poets, kings, nomads, lamas, nuns, spies and painters. Each story is an enactment of a disappearing Tibet, and a tribute to what is rapidly disappearing in remote tribal areas of Northern India and Tibet.

The Library of Tibetan Works and Archives, Gangchen Kyishong, Dharmsala, India. This is where my book began, fourteen years ago.
