Lions Roar : March 2011
SHAMBHALA SUN MArcH 2011 86 RaDio sHangRi-la What i learned in Bhutan, the Happiest Kingdom on earth By Lisa Napoli Crown 2011; 304 pp., $25 (cloth) snaKe laKe By Jeff Greenwald Counterpoint 2010; 384 pp., $15.95 (paper) When Lisa Napoli hit her forties, “a near- continuous looping chorus of ‘what ifs’ and ‘if onlys’ became [her] soundtrack.” But then a chance encounter led Napoli to transcend her midlife crisis by moving to Bhutan and volunteering at the country’s first radio sta- tion for youth. Few Westerners have traveled to the Buddhist nation of Bhutan and it’s a delight to be able to visit through the color- ful story of Radio Shangri-La. Snake Lake, with its Nepalese setting, is another addition to the travel memoir section. It opens with the intriguing line, “The brawl began with an eggplant,” and from there it rips into revolution and ro- mance, death, and dharma. Jeff Greenwald is the author of five bestselling books, in- cluding Shopping for Buddhas, and he has contributed to publications such as The New York Times Magazine and National Geographic Adventure. iKeBana sTYle 20 portable Flower arrangements perfect for gift-giving By Keiko Kubo Trumpeter Books 2010; 95 pp., $19.95 (paper) It’s been years since I’ve done ikebana, Japa- nese flower arranging, but this might be the book that gets me back into it. The twenty designs in Ikebana Style are attractive and look complex, but the instructions for how to put them together are totally unintimi- dating. The author, Keiko Kubo, who has a master’s degree in fine arts, is a certified ikebana teacher and an independent floral designer working in Chicago. A fresh take on the traditional, her designs combine Eastern and Western influences. I particu- larly like the tropical flair of her “Orchids With Limes” arrangement and the playful- ness of her “Floral Gift Box”—an arrange- ment of roses in a square glass container that is decorated with a flourish of flax-leaf “ribbon.” ♦
