Mountains Painted with Turmeric by Lil Bahadur Chettri, translated by Michael J. Hutt [in Bloomsbury Review]

Mountains Painted with TurmericIronically named “Wealthy One,” Dhané is a poor farmer who can’t get a lucky break in the small village his family has called home for many generations. Originally published in the 1950s, this new edition offers a rare, resonating glimpse of remote Nepali life – including an unflinching look at the corruption of those in power against those without.
