So excited for my friend Claire Scobie, who has recently published her first novel The Pagoda Tree.
The novel tells the story of the Devadasi, the sacred dancers of India.
Claire is, of course, the author of Last Seen in Lhasa, a legendary travel book about Tibet which is still frequently cited as one of the greatest travel books of our time.
The book trailer for The Pagoda Tree has just been launched, and it's as gorgeous as the book itself.
