Descriere RO

Goodbye Burma tells the dramatic and moving story of a family caught up in a critical moment in history, as Burma is bombed and overrun by Japanese troops at the end of 1941 and early in 1942.

It follows the fortunes of different family members as they join the hundreds of thousands of others who leave behind their lives and homes, many trekking out on treacherous routes through the mountains to the safety of India.

Drawing on her own familyÔÇÖs documents and memories, and on much careful research, the author reimagines their experiences, as the various characters carry with them their personal dilemmas and preoccupations, their loves and losses.

Goodbye Burma is candid in its portrayal of the social divisions and administrative failures of the collapsing British raj. At the same time, the story is both a warm-hearted, deeply human story and a powerful story of end of empire.
