Recommended via email by a High Peaks Pure Earth reader, “Ballad of the Himalayas: Stories of Tibet” by Ma Yuan, translated by Herbert J. Batt, was published by Merwin Asia in July 2011.
Our reader writes, “It’s a collection of short stories by a Chinese writer who spent many years in Tibet. The stories are extremely well crafted and offer an interesting, darkly humorous, and challenging outsider’s look at Tibet in the 1980s.” A full review can be found on their website: http://aprofessorintheory.com/review-of-ma-yuans-tibetan-stories/

Merwin Asia has a new book: Irina’s Hat….In it is the story “Amerika” by Tibetan author: Tsering Norbu
Also got Alai’s “Tibetan Soul” in English. Have you any comments about Alai’s writing?
Hope they will offer more Tibetan authors!
