The Long Path to Wisdom : Tales From Burma, Paperback / softback Book

The Long Path to Wisdom : Tales From Burma Paperback / softback


Jan-Philipp Sendker has visited Myanmar (Burma) for over twenty years and, while doing research for his novels The Art of Hearing Heartbeats and A Well-Tempered Heart, he encountered numerous folktales and fables.

These stories reveal the rich mythology and spirituality of the diverse peoples of Burma, and the profound social impact of Buddhist thought.

Reminiscent of the Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen, this collection illustrates how all cultures draw on a universal wisdom to create their myths. The Long Path to Wisdom's evocative stories are sure to delight fans of The Art of Hearing Heartbeats as well as readers new to the magic and emotion of Sendker's writing.
