Excommunication: Three Inquiries in Media and Mediation eIt is 2002dition of the Gender Justice english translation has 433 pages not 448It s a really fun book At first I wasnjoying it mildly At a certain point the characters and story really captured me Takes place in Tibet in the decades leading up to the communists taking over China It tells a very interesting story of what life was like in Tibet what the customs were and What People Were Like From The Point Of View Of people were like From the point of view of member of a ruling family The men of the ruling family get to sleep with all kinds of women which is kind of obnoxious It tells some interesting history I m glad it pretty much stopped short of Red China period because stories about Red China tend to be so depressingI really don t think I started this book on January 2nd Oh well what can I do I need to start keeping better track of when I start and finish books At least I know I finished this one on January 19th Despite my memories of traveling through Tibet and my affinity for the Tibetan people I could not finish this book about a feudal warlord prince growing up in 1930s Tibet My first clue should have been that it was published by the Chinese People s Literature Publishing House which struck me as disconcerting since this than likely means that it s been sanctioned by the Chinese government which struck me as disconcerting since this than likely means that it s been sanctioned by the Chinese government have ruled Tibet and watered down and misrepresented its culture for the past half century or so Does this story represent a typical and realistic view of traditional Tibetan culture Who knows Regardless the writing is stilted And This Could Be Due this could be due the translation or just the author s writing style andor Chinese language conventions but the very idea that a book by a native Tibetan who now lives in China and who writes in Chinese should have been a red flag as it were to me as wellThe proletariat PR machine that published this book made it a bestseller and then had it translated are sure good at what they do How Generations and Collective Memory else would this have made it onto a library bookself in Lexington KY I bought this from Alibris which sells castaway library books from around the countryTwo weeks a smidgen illegally backpacking through Tibet in the mid 90s led my friend and I to meet many nice and good hearted. Oltivazione il traffico dell'oppio si snoda la saga della dinastia MaichiA raccontarla è l'ultimo discendente della famiglia un giovane ritenuto idiota come tale disprezzato ignorato da tutti che sa osservare cose persone con un occhio ingenuo ma allo stesso tempo straordinariamente Red Poppies by Alai is an interesting piece not least because it is one of the few literary works that has passed the censors of China to make it s way from Tibet to the passed the censors of China to make it s way from Tibet to the world Because of this I have suspicions that the writer who is Chinese though has Tibetan heritage portrayed the Tibetan people within the novel in a way the censors would approve ofThe story takes place in twentieth century Tibet and the narrator is the second and youngest son of a Tibetan warlord the Maichi family He tells us with nearly the first sentence of the books certainly the first paragraph I don t recall the book is somewhere in the house but I am lazy that he is an idiot Everyone thinks so His older brother the heir his mother his nanny who is also his first lover his father veryoneHowever it became apparent to me pretty Guitar Makers: The Endurance of Artisanal Values in North America early on that the narrator is not an idiot at all he s actually very perceptive People only think he s an idiot because he sometimes says things that are socially and politically inept The plot follows The Idiot s moves and sexualxploits his good and bad fortune as his father falls ill The book is filled with hinted magic or magical realism Think One Thousand Years of Solitude by Garcia Maruez so the magic could be coincidence but could also be magicThough the book is interesting I also feel like it dragged on a bit Certain things were brought up throughout the book that I thought would have a profound impact only to be cast by the wayside later An interesting read if you re interested in what kind of literature makes it past the Chinese censors but not my favorite read of the year that s for sure despite the book being deep and nuancedIf you re interested in this book check out your local bookstore please please please before looking on A lush gritty portrait of Tibetan feudal life told by the idiot son of the second wife
