Han SuYin The Mountain is Young

Woke to the news that author Han SuYin has passed away at age 96. Forget Love is a Many Splendored Thing. The book to read is The Mountain is Young. HOT hapa - desi love story. Set in 1950's Kathmandu against the backdrop of the King's coronation (LOVE the charismatic Boris), the valley is gorgeous, the cultural festivals not exoticized, with a woman writer, stifling marriage, voyage of self-discovery, the swagger of international development, and did i mention HOT hapa - desi love story (before folks even identified that way).
