The novel which sprung out of his time in the country, Burmese Days , is a loosely fictionalised account of his time there, and reveals the dark side of the British Raj in a way that few have before or since.

This is the story of his incredible journey from the jungles of Burma, where he was a freedom fighter battling the ruling regime, to Cambridge University, where he studied literature in the early s. From the Land of Green Ghosts is both an incredible survival story and a depiction of a little known culture and society.

It follows the little known story of British explorer George Scott, who introduced the game of soccer to the Burmese, and who toured the country extensively before becoming Colonial Administrator of Burma. Scott was a true eccentric, who took everything he observed in his stride and who was noticeable for his unbridled enthusiasm for his own explorations. Marshall follows in his footsteps a century later, and discovers a Burma far removed from that of Scott, bristling under political repression and corruption.

Combining travel writing with reportage and history, this is an insightful and humorous introduction to the British in Burma, and an unforgiving account of the lingering consequences of their rule.

Her 15 year house arrest curtailed her political protest but she was nevertheless a constant thorn in the side of the military junta, not least as a symbol of the dissatisfaction and frustration that most ordinary Burmese felt. Letters From Burma collects her letters from her period of house arrest which reveal her tireless work to spread the cause of Burmese democracy as well as offering an insight into her selfless mentality, and her thoughts and reflections on her countrymen and women, for whom she strived for so long.

He also delves into her life in England, where she studied at Oxford University and was married to the scholar Michael Aris. Lynn Neary talked with Tan about her new direction. I'm Liane Hansen. With her first novel, "The Joy Luck Club," writer Amy Tan began to develop a loyal following of readers fascinated by her exploration of familial relationships steeped in the culture and folklore of China. But in her latest novel, "Saving Fish from Drowning," Tan leaves that territory behind, both literally and figuratively, as she tells the tale of a group of American tourists lost in Burma.

NPR's Lynn Neary reports. After the huge success of "The Joy Luck Club," she worried that her second book would be a dismal failure; it wasn't.

All of Tan's novels have been well-received, so this time she worried because "Saving Fish from Drowning" is so unlike her other books. AMY TAN Author, "Saving Fish from Drowning" : I knew that I was going to be doing something different from all the books, that it wasn't going to concern mothers and daughters or sisters, and it just scared me.

I was also going to do something for the first time that wasn't so deeply personal and intimate, that had more to do with politics, in a way. So there were a lot of unknowns with this book for me. The illness triggered seizures, memory loss and a devastating lack of energy.

TAN: It was hard to concentrate, and when you can't stay focused from sentence to sentence and paragraph to paragraph, it is hard to write a novel.

So I was in great despair over that. I couldn't read even two pages and remember what I had read. NEARY: Another big change in Tan's life is that her mother--who has figured so prominently in her writing--died after a long struggle with Alzheimer's.

Tan says she doesn't know yet whether or not whether she has fully explored her complicated, often difficult relationship with her mother. This new book is not about that kind of relationship, but Tan says her mother is still a part of it. TAN: Bibi Chen, the character, the narrator of this book, is very much like my mother. If my mother had been educated in all those areas, if she spoke English a bit more fluently, then I think that much of the way Bibi talks about things--her observations, her honesty, her inappropriate remarks--are something that felt very natural to me, because I used in mind my mother's voice.

She dies unexpectedly and violently just weeks before she's supposed to lead a group of her friends on an art tour of China and Burma. The group goes ahead with the trip led by a guide who knows little about China and even less about Burma.

The spirit of Bibi Chen watches everything and though she can't really intervene in what happens, she can comment on it.

It is Bibi who describes the subtle changes that occur as the tour bus enters Burma, now known as Myanmar. Nothing had changed from one country to the next, or so it appeared to my friends.TAN: Bibi Chen, the character, the narrator of this book, is very much like my mother. One is left with the impression that he does very little -- rather poor PR for the dissident movement.

More than Love. Nothing had changed from one country to the next, or so it appeared to my friends.
