This remarkable work of creative nonfiction takes place in Burma, spanning more than two decades of the pro-democracy movement.
It is a spare and poignant portrayal of the country's continuing political instability and two fictitious families whose lives are inexorably shaped by the turmoil.
Using the metaphor of travelers journeying on a road, Suragamika intersperses creative vignettes with true-to-life descriptions of the changing political and social context.
The narrative reveals the harsh realities of life in Burma since the 8-8-88 uprising, yet conveys an unflagging hope for the future.Here is one clear, new voice emanating from the heart of Burma.
It compels the world to listen and watch and travel along with it.
