The Tibetan Wild Swans; an extraordinary story of survival across three generations of women.
Born in 1980 to a Swiss father and Tibetan mother, Yangzom Brauen is an actress and political activist. She lives in both Los Angeles and Berlin and has appeared in a number of German and American films. She is also very active in the Free Tibet movement, making regular radio broadcasts about Tibet and organising public demonstrations against the Chinese occupation of Tibet.
We have a glimpse here of Tibet, before and after the Chinese
occupation, that is unsentimental and down to earth. Yangzom Brauen
has given us an informative and even surprising picture of a place
and time that most readers will never see -- Jonathan Mirsky *
