About This Book

Memories from Afar follows the lives of two young men in Burma - one of royal blood and one commoner - whose lives while separated by 60 years in time, are linked by shared customs, traditions and beliefs. This novella presents a whimsical and nostalgic view of growing up in troubled times, of finding strength to endure and eventually prevail. The story is told in English but for occasions and emotions that the English language cannot do justice to, Burmese words accompanied by as tight a translation possible are used. Together with the intriguing artwork of the Burmese people that mingles with pages filled with text, the novel will arouse interest and provide an understanding of an elusive culture.
