Longing for Darknessby China Galland

The popularity of recent works by authors like Sue Monk Kidd and Kathleen Norris have only increased readers' fascination. Now with a new introduction by the author, Longing for Darkness explores Galland's spellbinding and deeply personal journey from New Mexico through Nepal, India, Switzerland, France, the former Yugoslavia, and Polandplaces where such figures as Tara, the female Buddha of the Tibetan tradition, and the Black Madonna are venerated today.
