A Blighted Flower and Other stories provide a fascinating glimpse of modern Tibetan literary art. These four stories focus on women's lives in contemporary Tibet.The translation of Dondrub Gyel's A Blighted Flower forms the main work in this collection. It is a novella of seven chapters and is considered to be one of the pioneering works in modern Tibetan storytelling. The other stories in this compilation are: A Shameless Bride by Dondrub Gyel and Tshering Dondrub, A Girl with Her Face Concealed by a Scarf by Tenpa Yargye and The Yellow Leaves of Summer by Tashi Palden.Until recently access to modern Tibetan novels and Short Stories for non-Tibetan readers has been rare and the present work is intended to fill this gap.Printed Pages: 154.
