Letters From Burma
Penguin Adult, 2010/02/04 - 209 ページ
In these unforgettable letters, Aung San Suu Kyi reaches out beyond Burma s borders to paint for her readers a vivid and poignant picture of her native land.
Here she celebrates the courageous army officers, academics, actors and everyday people who have supported the National League for Democracy, often at great risk to their own lives. She reveals the impact of political decisions on the people of Burma, from the terrible cost to the children of imprisoned dissidents allowed to see their parents for only fifteen minutes every fortnight to the effect of inflation on the national diet and of state repression on traditions of hospitality. She also evokes the beauty of the country s seasons and scenery, customs and festivities, that remain so close to her heart.
Through these remarkable letters, the reader catches a glimpse of exactly what is at stake as Suu Kyi fights on for freedom in Burma, and of the love for her homeland that sustains her non-violent battle.
