About the book:
A series of stories, told by a range of real and fictive narrators which lyrically evoke the childhoods and the adult adventures and struggles of a Karen family in Myanmar, through the twentieth and into the twenty first century. With vivid and beautiful illustrations, drawn from historic photographs and the work of the artist/author, this book is as illuminating about Myanmar as it is a moving account of an admirably adventurous, enterprising and eccentric family. A poetic and beautifully illustrated account of a family, its adventures and experience, and their country Myanmar.
