The Violet Shyness of Their Eyes: Notes from Nepal Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Cultural Writing. Travel. Memoir. Revised Edition 2005. Ranging across mountains and memories, Scot's classic journal of her experiences in Nepal in 1990 is now published in a revised edition that includes reflections on a return trip in 2004. "Scot's year in Nepal was extraordinary. What she discovered about herself, about Nepal and the Nepalis is beautifully told"--Seattle Times. "THE VIOLET SHYNESS OF THEIR EYES will enter your heart, and stay"--Margaret Randall.

Synopsis:

The Violet Shyness of Their Eyes details Barbara Scot's experiences teaching English in Nepal. Her insights on her midwestern background, on cultural difference, on the struggles of Nepali Women, and on her role as a global citizen illuminate Scot's complex feminism. She redefines herself and embraces her mid-life passage.
