These are wonderful letters, inspirational, truthful, always with a core of dignity and hope for the future. She tells the truth about her country, describing it as both beautiful and cruel, never flinching from the unpalatable, and always ready to celebrate what is joyful and uplifting.
Necessary if you are interested in any way in the history and culture of Burma and its peoples, but also if you are interested in the fight to protect and provide basic human rights.
Full of grace and charm these letters cover the political situation in Myanmar at that time, as well as aspects of Burmese culture - the water festival, poetry, Buddhism amongst others.
This is a short book - of the 200 ish pages every 4th page is a drawing, and I read the whole book in just a few hours. Well worth reading though, especially if you have visited or are going to visit Myanmar
