Reviews

'House of Snow [corrals] some fabulous literature on Nepal' Wanderlust. 'One of the finest books I have read this year. It contains diverse, eye-opening and very good reading across both fact and fiction' Nudge Book. 'A great collection' Adventure Travel magazine. 'There has emerged a generation of intellectuals, activists and writers, committed to building a new kind of Nepal. It is to the credit of the editor of House of Snow that many of their names are represented in its pages ... If you want a book in English that tells you about Nepalese thinking, and gives a taste of the country's contemporary literature, you could hardly do better' 5 stars, The Daily Telegraph.
