"'The Han Chinese presence in Tibet hovers in the background like a Himalayan mist ... captures something true and fresh about modern China" Independent "A fast-paced read, bold and brassy, at times super-sensitive and insightful, with cheeky asides and a raw honesty that will make readers laugh out loud." South China Morning Post "Manages to turn often comic human relationships into an unsettling metaphor for China's political and cultural domination of Tibet." Asia Times
