`A Year in Tibet' follows the author as she lives for eighteen months in a remote village in Tibet.

Sun Shuyun, a Chinese writer and historian, takes the reader to a tiny and isolated village in Tibet, known for its anti-Chinese stance. She and a team who were half Chinese and half Tibetan, lived and worked there for eighteen months, filming and recording daily life. `A Year in Tibet' is an insight into the relationship between the Chinese and Tibetans, the history behind it, and the way the two interact in the 21st century. Written with Sun Shuyun's characteristic insight into relationships, this is social and political history with an emphasis on humanity.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Susan Elderkin, Financial Times (Book of the Year)

`Arresting vignettes in a fascinating account of the year that the author and a film crew spent in a village in a remote corner of Tibet. Sun Shuyun, who studied Tibetan at Oxford, uses it to chart a much more personal and sometimes painful journey.' Daily Telegraph

`"A Year in Tibet" is a fascinating study of a little-known land.' Observer

'What does come through ringing clear is the Tibetan people's remarkable serenity even in the midst of terrible hardships.' Daily Mail

Praise for `The Long March':

'An impressive job of on-the-ground reporting, interweaving the memories of survivors to build up the narrative... ' Observer

'Sun Shuyun provides a sympathetic account...all the more refreshing because of the grit of her own travails.' The Times

'[Sun Shuyun's] is a lively and very human account.' Sunday Telegraph

'From the ocean of lies about the Long March she has salvaged much truth. I hope...Shuyun writes more books' Literary Review

Praise for `Ten Thousand Miles without a Cloud':

'Packed with erudition and perception...it is also honest, sensitive, entirely without ego...ultimately, a meditation on the human condition.' Evening Standard

'Sun Shuyun records her feelings and those of others with spontaneous simplicity, almost innocence, as if she were still the child seeking her grandmother's solution.' Sunday Telegraph
