Add to wish list


Detailed Product Description
2013, 1st edition. 272 pp. This intriguing novel hits on several themes in recent and contemporary Nepalese life, society and politics. It is a well-hewn character study of several individuals caught up in intriguing and dramatic events and relationships. There is an American Peace Corps Volunteer and a Sherpa policeman, her lover. The volunteer spends most of her time living an adventurous life as a skilled trek and climbing guide, with only brief reference to some village latrines she is promoting.

There’s also an aging Maoist commander who, given several brutal mistakes by his cadres, appears to be losing his faith and interest in the cause. Another two main characters are 30-year career CIA agents who are seeking to lure two of the other characters in the book to the American side before they retire.

The novel takes place in several locations, although the Solu-Khumbu’s Lukla Airport is where the most of the startling “incident” of the book’s title takes place. There are other scenes including at the Maoist commander’s hideout, a visit to Biratnagar in the Nepal terai lowlands, and at the Tengboche monastery within view of Mount Everest.
