Burma in the World Pulse Book Club

Hey guys,

I just started a group called World Pulse Book Club

We are planning to read a book each month from a different country and then have a discussion about it, the country it talks about and so on. We are also hoping to get a representative from different countries. I would love to get members from this group to participate in the book club. You can nominate books about Burma, written by Burmese writers etc. Also , you can pick a Burma representative(s), she(they) can answer our questions and join our exciting discussion:)

I contacted other groups representing specific countries, I hope to read more about Burma:)

ps:- I really want to read the perfect hostage , about Aung San Sui Kyi!:)

Aung San Suu Kyi

Hi Kizzie,

Regarding Aung San Suu Kyi, I would suggest "Letters from Burma" (which she wrote) or "The Voice of Hope" which is her own words in conversation with Alan Clements. Other Burma possibilities include "The Lizard Cage" by Karen Connelly, "Finding George Orwell in Burma" by Emma Larkin, and "From the Land of Green Ghosts" by Pascal Khoo Thwe. Zoya Phan, a Karen activist, has recently published a memoir called "Little Daughter." It sounds very good, but may only be available in the UK so far. Also, my books, "Burmese Looking Glass" & "Down the Rat Hole" may be of interest.


"DOWN THE RAT HOLE: Adventures Underground on Burma's Frontiers"
is the latest book by Edith Mirante (author of "Burmese Looking Glass")
published by Orchid Press.
