In a circular valley beneath the looming peaks of the Himalaya lies Kathmandu, Nepal. It s a city of shimmering prayer flags, sacred cows, lavish festivals, and violent political turbulenceand a world that journalist Jeff Greenwald has come to call home. "Snake Lake" unfolds during 1990 s dramatic people power uprising against Nepal s long-entrenched monarchy. The story follows Greenwald as he wins the friendship of a high lama who reveals the pillars of Tibetan Buddhism; embarks on a passionate romance with a spunky but curiously unlucky news photographer; and discovers what democracy means to rural Nepali citizensall while covering the revolution for a major American newspaper. Meanwhile, back in the U.S., Greenwald s brilliant but troubled younger brother descends into a deepening depression. The author is forced to choose between witnessing Nepal s long-overdue revolution and reconnecting with an alienated brother in desperate need of help. "Snake Lake" is primarily a memoir (though the roles of several characters have been recast). Focused on the life-changing events that unfolded during one calamitous spring, the book weaves a vivid tapestry of Buddhism, revolution, and the often serpentine paths to personal liberation."."In a circular valley beneath the looming peaks of the Himalaya lies Kathmandu, Nepal.
