Orange Prize–winner Karen Connelly’s compelling memoir about her journey to Burma, where she fell in love with a leader of the Burmese rebel army.

When Karen Connelly goes to Burma in 1996 to gather information for a series of articles, she discovers a place of unexpected beauty and generosity. She also encounters a country ruled by a brutal military dictatorship that imposes a code of censorship and terror. Carefully seeking out the regime’s critics, she witnesses mass demonstrations, attends protests, interviews detained opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi and flees from police. When it gets too risky for her to stay, Connelly flies back to Thailand, but she cannot leave Burma behind.

Connelly’s interest in the political turns more personal on the Thai-Burmese border, where she falls in love with Maung, the handsome and charismatic leader of one of Burma’s many resistance groups. After visiting Maung’s military camp in the jungle, she faces an agonizing decision: Maung wants to marry Connelly and have a family with her, but if she marries this man she also weds his world and his lifelong cause. Struggling to weigh the idealism of her convictions against the harsh realities of life on the border, Connelly transports the reader into a world as dangerous as it is enchanting.

In radiant prose layered with passion, regret, sensuality and wry humor, Burmese Lessons tells the captivating story of how one woman came to love a wounded, beautiful country and a gifted man who has given his life to the struggle for political change.

LAURA. HISTORIAS BIRMANAS. (Spanish Edition)
Edicion revisada el 9 de Julio del 2012.

Este libro ha sido escrito simplemente porque habia, realmente algo que contar.

La primera parte del libro consiste en historias sucedidas en el sudeste asiatico; aunque en algun caso se les ha adjudicado un final fantastico, esta basado en hechos reales, algunos ocurridos hace algunas decadas, algunos hace no tantas.

Os dejo un ejemplo:
"El elefante.
Habia una vez un elefante, que trabajaba transportando troncos desde el interior de la selva a la orilla del rio. Le gustaba su trabajo y se sentia feliz siendo util. Siempre habia convivido con humanos y los queria mucho. Pero ese ultimo capataz era un tirano y lo azotaba sin cesar. El elefante aguanto pacientemente, pero una vez, harto de los golpes, le quiso quitar la fusta y tumbo al hombre contra el suelo. El elefante se asusto al verlo inconsciente en el suelo. Lo palpo y supo que estaba muerto. En seguida vinieron otros hombres, a ver que pasaba, el elefante entendio su falta. Amablemente se puso de rodillas y se dispuso a recibir su castigo. Y el elefante fue ejecutado".


La segunda parte, "Laura" es una historia en un pequeno pueblo de Avila, de tipo costumbrista y muy romantica, puede resultar CONTROVERTIDA en cuanto al tipo de idioma espanol utilizado, algunos dirian "conceptual" dada la parquedad de la forma de hablar de los castellanos.

Deseo sinceramente que os llene.
