The manuscript of this literary milestone in Tibetan creative writing lay forgotten after the author died in Canada twenty years ago. A tip-off from an eminent scholar led us to long search and has saved it from oblivion. Another Place is a witty and rollicking novel weaving characters from a small Tibetan refugee community in northwestern India a savvy young man, a pompous government bureaucrat, the most beautiful girl in town, a clique of card-players united by jokes, gossip, beer and male camaraderie, the shameless baroom cadge all interwoven with love, friendship, politics, protests and hope. This genuine insight into the 1990's exile Tibetan community is a compelling tour-de-force.
