After living in the United States for over a decade, Kenneth Wong returns to his native Burma - a country fraught with political upheaval and laden with superstition - to face the cultural specters of his own past and the spirit of a land trapped in time. In the tradition of Orwell, Maugham and Theroux, Wong shows Burma as an exotic place that invites, frightens, teases and haunts citizens and visitors alike with its unique mixture of ill-kept Edwardian structures, pockmarked English mansions, and glittering Buddhist temples.
