This is an auction for SKY BURIAL by Xinran.

“In THE GOOD WOMEN OF CHINA (2002), former radio host Xinran preserved the horrific stories told by her call-in listeners. In her breathtaking first novel, she fictionalizes with stunning restraint and indelible poignancy a remarkable true-life tale. Wen and Kejun, two Chinese doctors, are utterly devoted to each other, but Kejun feels obligated to enlist in the People's Liberation Army and is sent to Chinese-occupied Tibet in 1958. When Wen receives word that he has died, she courageously sets out to discover the truth about Kejun's fate, inadvertently launching a 30-year odyssey. Taken in by a generous, nomadic Tibetan family, Wen endures mythic isolation and tests of faith. Then, when she finally returns to China, it is as foreign to her as Tibet once was. In crystalline prose as measured as the breath of a yogi, Xinran perfectly renders the emotional evolution of a mourning woman alone in a mysterious land, and gorgeously evokes the vast and timeless grandeur of Tibet, the physically arduous yet spiritually resonant lives of Tibetans, and the transforming power of love.”
