While the Gods Were Sleeping: A Journey Through Love and Rebellion in Nepal While the Gods Were Sleeping: A Journey Through Love and Rebellion in Nepal

by Elizabeth Enslin

Book Reviews

"I am fascinated and haunted by Elizabeth Enslin's story. It will stay with you and won't let you go."
-- Luis Alberto Urrea, bestselling author of Into the Beautiful North and The Hummingbird's Daughter

"If this fascinating, important story doesn't draw you into Enslin's telling of her time in Nepal, then the beautiful, moving prose will."
-- Kerry Cohen, author of Seeing Ezra

"A fascinating memoir written with such clarity and honesty that it's like taking a years-long trip through a little-known part of Nepal, far from the glamour and tourists of Kathmandu. Enslin's story is utterly unique yet broadly representative of billions of humans in so-called marginal places all over the world caught between tradition, politics, idealism, human nature, the environment, the local economy, the decidedly mixed blessings of globalization, and the simple pleasures of food, family, and the natural world."
-- Pamela Olson, author of Fast Times in Palestine

"This finely written memoir transports the reader into a society on the cusp of social and political transformation. The barriers to gender, caste, and class equality that Elizabeth Enslin reveals continue to impede Nepal's quest for democracy today. This is an inspiring and challenging read for activists, rebels, and dreamers everywhere."
-- Manjushree Thapa, author of Forget Kathmandu

"Elizabeth Enslin is a daring original, both in life and on the page. While the Gods Were Sleeping is a love story, an adventure narrative, and an anthropological study in one, written with a global awareness, free of the exoticism we associate with foreigners in Nepal. Sharply observant and full of wisdom.”
-- Alden Jones, author of The Blind Masseuse
