REVIEWS HOUSE OF SNOW An Anthology of the Greatest Writing About Nepal Foreword by Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Introduction by Ed Douglas Head of Zeus 2016; 570 pp., £25 (cloth) Perched high in the Hima- layas, Nepal is a multiethnic nation that has been inhabited by humans for at least 11,000 years. In his introduction to House of Snow, Ed Douglas writes, “Overshadowed by its colossal neighbors, Nepal’s voice often struggles to be heard, but it is a voice that is distinct, often playful, long- suffering, proud, resigned but undoubtedly of its own mak- ing.” The captivating voice of Nepal is celebrated in this collection of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. It features a diverse cast of writers, ranging from mountaineers to political journalists, Nepali national treasures to international celebrities. All profits from the sales of House of Snow will be donated to the Pahar Trust Nepal to fund earth- quake-relief projects. COMING HOME TO TIBET A Memoir of Love, Loss, and Belonging By Tsering Wangmo Dhompa Shambhala Publications 2016; 304 pp., $18.95 (paper) In her youth, Tsering Wangmo Dhompa’s mother escaped occu- pied Tibet and then lived the rest of her life in exile. She ached for her homeland and family left behind and raised her daughter with haunting stories of them. Following her mother’s death, Dhompa decided to go to Tibet with a handful of her ashes. This memoir is the story of that journey. While it’s an intimate portrait of one Tibetan family, it offers readers a glimpse of an entire people—their tragic history and current struggles in a rapidly changing world. Buddhism, we discover, still perme- ates the lives of Tibetans. There are elders wearing away prayer beads with their fervent fingers, children and lovers circumam- bulating stupas, and contraband photos, songs, and dreams of the Dalai Lama. I love Dhompa’s sensual, lyrical descriptions of Tibet—its flowers, longhaired men, butter lamps, and snow. LION’S ROAR | JANUARY 2017 78
